The information minister claimed lots of power was at play leading to what many described as disarray.
“Really to blame President Barrow alone for the mess the coalition faced would be totally unfair,” the Information minister told West Coast Radio on Tuesday.
National Assembly Member for Wuli East, Sidia Jatta recently accused President Barrow of killing the 2016 Coalition while accusing UDP leader, Ousainou Darboe of burying it
Hon. Jatta said the coalition died in the first instance due to the way Barrow formed his cabinet.
The veteran politician also accused Darboe for burying the coalition when he threatened to sue anyone who calls on Barrow to step down after three years per the coalition’s gentleman’s agreement.
Despite these revelations, however, Minister Sillah claimed a lot more was at play even though Barrow was the presidential candidate.
“Even though he was at least the presidential candidate, but of course you also had different powers at play that when they came to power the disagreements had emerged and trying to fix those agreements, ensuring that the country was intact was a challenge.”
Coalition 2016 comprising eight political parties at the time came together and defeated Yahya Jammeh in the December 2016 elections.
But since coming into office in January 2017, the coalition turned chaotic.
