A member of the Citizens’ Alliance Party (CA), Abdourahim Jallow has said that his party needs a new leadership who respects its fundamental core values.

“CA needs a new leadership, if CA have a leader who respects the fundamental core values of the party, then I will continue with them…,” he told Kerr Fatou’s ‘Politic Kaacha’ show on Tuesday.

Jallow who has not resigned from the party yet, decided to distance himself from the party.

“I will maintain my decision to distance myself from the party until there is changes in the CA leadership,” he added.

Jallow and CA leadership clashed over the allegation of him receiving vehicles from the National People’s Party to campaign 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. 

In another development, the Citizens’ Alliance has suspended Nenneh Freda Gomez, its spokesperson.

The party in a statement said Gomez is found in “breach” of the party’s constitution and the suspension followed a thorough investigation by its Accountability Committee, which it said found Ms. Gomez in “breach” of its Constitution.

The leaked WhatsApp message in question is the comment by one of the party’s executive members against this medium, which the medium rebutted.

In a virtual meeting on Sunday, the CA confirmed constituting a panel to investigate circumstances surrounding the leaking of the message saying, “all members have cooperated to send details, except one”.

However, the statement recognised the suspended spokesperson’s right to appeal, against her suspension.

When contacted for comment on matter by this medium, Nenneh claimed to have not received a formal communication of the development from her party.
