By Landing Ceesay 


The Deputy Leader of the Gambia Party for Democracy and Progress (GPDP) has resigned and confirmed talks with the United Democratic Party (UDP).


“I have been proud to serve the GPDP political party since 2017. I have served as the deputy public relations officer for two years and most significantly the Deputy Secretary-General and Party leader. This is with great gratitude and a little sorrow that I must resign from the position and party in general. I intend to go on to other opportunities, which will hopefully allow me to continue to serve the public interest in the same manner. I sincerely thank the GPDP executive for being friends, mentors and impeccable colleagues during my tenure,” Lamin Jawara stated in a letter obtained by Kerr Fatou. 


Jawara, whose resignation would take effect on Monday, confirmed the development to this reporter in a telephone interview. 


“My resignation from GPDP is true and it will take effect from tomorrow 25th of October 2021. I am currently in talks with the United Democratic Party (UDP), but nothing is confirmed yet. ‘Insha Allah’ (God willing), next week everything will be confirmed,” he said. 


The Gambia Party for Democracy and Progress (GPDP) is a political party in The Gambia, led by Henry Gomez, who is currently serving as an advisor to President Adama Barrow.
