Mayor Colley: APRC will form the next gov’t

Tuesday, January 09, 2018

Yankuba Colley, the national mobiliser of the Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC) has stated with confidence that the next government will be formed by the APRC party.

Colley, who is also the mayor of the Kanifing Municipality Council (KMC) was speaking to The Point in an exclusive interview with regard to the ongoing tour of the party since its former leader was defeated in the last presidential election.

“The tour is going on fine and people are responding positively even than before,” he added. “In fact people are saying that we should have been with them before than now and they are very happy,” he added.

Quizzed by the reporter whether the alleged atrocity being committed during the former regime will not affecting the party, the APRC’s national mobilizer emphatically made it clear that it will not affect the party and that they are doing everything possible to come back to governance.

“Remember that people are making that smear campaign throughout,” he said. “But we make a political rally at Buffer Zone that no one will ever do in this country. No government or party has ever pulled such kind of gathering.”

He argued that there is no way that the APRC can be stopped. “In fact before you talk about APRC or Yahya Jammeh, let them give the people what they deserve and bring development to their doorsteps,” he stated.

Gambian mindsets, mayor Colley went on, have already changed for the fact that they have seen the vacuum that is not filled. “That’s why Gambians are welcoming us all over, because the APRC Party is development and action oriented party,” he said.

Asked to share with The Point what message the interim party leader, Fabakary Tombong Jatta, is spreading out to Gambians, Collley stated that one was to continue to leave in peace and stop tribalism and for the government to bring development to Gambians.

He said there are unprecedented developments that APRC party have brought to Gambian people, adding that this are some of the things people will continue to cherish the party for. He called on his party supporters to redouble their unflinching support as the party is on the verge of regaining it glories in forming the next government.
