In an interview with The Point, Mr. Jabbi stated that illegal migration is never a good actandthatitgives the nation of The Gambia a bad name. He referred to the practice as a disease and decried the lack of a cure at the moment.

He urged the youth of the nation to always work to maintain the high reputation of The Gambia and key to this is to stop attempting to take the back way to Europe.

He further urged all young people to beware of people who might seek to steal or illegally purchase their documents as they could be then sold on to illegal migrants from other countries who believe that Gambians will not be deported from the Kingdom of Spain. He finally urged the youth of The Gambia to desist from this practice which he said only brings misery and possibly even death
