APRC brands Barrow as ‘worst enemy’

Fabakary Tombong Jatta, the interim leader of the opposition Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC) party has described President Adama Barrow as APRC’s “worst enemy.”

The former Serrekunda East lawmaker was speaking in an interview with Star FM, saying President Adama Barrow should be held responsible for whatever is happening to the APRC because he is at the helm of affairs.

“Barrow is the president and it is his government. So anything that happens; even if it was done by another person, he should be the one to accept or not accept anything from happening. So in that light, we described Adama Barrow and his government as the worst enemies of APRC, because they unjustifiably seized our fundamental rights,” says the former NAM.

“We were in government for 22 years, and everything was said about the number of vehicles we were having. But now, they took over the government and in three to four months, they first got new pick-ups for the NAMs. And now how many vehicles does President Barrow have,” he quizzed rhetorically, while arguing that Barrow’s vehicles are in tents but “where did they get them from?”

According to him, the Barrow-led government also froze their accounts through the Janneh Commission, adding that they have also gunned down some people with nothing coming out of it.

“They also arrested our people deliberately. Now if all these things are happening; and the person who has the power to remove or stop all those things from happening is the president and is keeping quiet over it, then that person is an enemy to the party.”
