Abdourahim Jallow –Member of the Citizens’ Alliance Party
By Buba Gagigo
A strong supporter of the Citizens’ Alliance Party (CA), Abdourahim Jallow said his party has taken back the motorbike it allocated to him.
“I was surprised after my interview with Meng Beh Kering, they (CA) passed a memo for all the motorbikes to be returned for maintenance. I knew that was not the reason. I don’t need anything that doesn’t belong to me. CA is my party, but the motorbike belongs to the party,” he explained.
Jallow added that he has returned the key with the bike to the party and the receipts for maintenance carried out on the bike, which he personally paid, but said CA has not refunded him still.
“I have even once returned that motorbike better because I don’t want anyone to belittle me; and that’s what they wanted to do during one of our executive meetings. I returned the bike key. This time also, I have handed over the key and bike to the chairman and all the receipts I used to maintenance the bike, but they have still not refunded me. If they don’t, I have to leave them with God,” he told Kerr Fatou’s ‘Politic Kaacha’ show on Tuesday.
Abdourahim Jallow has not resigned but distanced himself from the party, and is advocating a change of leadership whom he said would ‘respect the fundamental values” of CA.
Jallow and CA leadership clashed over the allegation of him receiving vehicles from the National People’s Party in the name of CA to campaign for the President in the 2021 presidential election campaign without the endorsement of CA.
Dr. Ismaila Ceesay confessed to have met the NPP leader and facilitated only a vehicle for CA members interested to campaign for the President; but insisted doing so in his personal capacity, and not as CA leader.
