Barrow confident of victory ahead of Saturday polls

Dec 2, 2021, 1:15 PM

President Adama Barrow in a rally held at Latrikunda German on Tuesday told supporters that the noise is too much but the oppositions knew he will defeat them in Saturday’s polls.

The president is optimistic of clear victory on Saturday but urged supporters not to be lackadaisical in making that dream come through. He believes that the people of Kanifing Municipality are in support of his government and will vote for him this Saturday.

Continuing his political propaganda, the President explained that “our coalition is a grand one because it never happens in the history of the country. Last election we had only eight but this year I have about 20 that joined me. Those candidates see only Gambia and that's the reason they joined me in order to develop the country.”

He called on the citizens to promote peace ahead of the election despite “our political differences” and further explained that politics is “just a water in a cup” where people have to drink and pass it to others.

President stated he bears in mind leaving the presidency one day and pass the baton to someone, saying he wants people to remember that he constructed the roads and bridges, brought electricity, first class highway, hospitals and schools to the country.

“I want the politicians to come together after election and develop the country irrespective of the political party they belong to.”

He said his government secured $120 million to construct the stream in Kotu, adding he is here to develop the country and not to discriminate against people.

Hamat Bah also highlighted that the country is owned by Gambians where everyone is equal. He added that no one can be entrusted with our nation without promoting peace.

“The President brought us peace regardless of the tribe or religion. No one has been imprisoned using the laws that are still here. He can utilise it anytime he wants but he prefers to let things go. God made no mistake in bringing Adama Barrow to develop and stabilise the country.”
