She, later declared herself leader of PPP.

 “I was received at Foni today and recognised as the SG and party leader of the PPP, pending free and fair elections,” she said.

“In the coming week we shall be received by all other Regional Chairpersons of the PPP as their choice of Party Leader. Gambia loves the PPP it was the leadership that was to be desired.”

“My leadership shall be for the People …. Leadership to empower the women and the youth…. An inclusive leadership in which transparency and accountability would be of priority.”
