Ahead of the Local Government Elections, Lawyer Ousainou Darboe, the Secretary-General and Party leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP) has urged Gambians to show president Adama Barrow that he is rejected.
“These local government elections we must show Adama Barrow and his people that Gambians have rejected him. And whatever he’s trying is not going to work. I must admit that UDP probably made some mistakes in the presidential election when we didn’t have people at the collation centers but we are going to have our people in all collation centers so that nobody cooks up any figures so that nobody gives wrong information to the people regarding our votes.
That’s not going to happen at all. In fact, what happened in the Kuntaur Area Council Chairmanship election, is not going to happen again. swapping UDP’s votes with that of GDC is not going to happen anymore. We will make sure that all the votes are properly counted, all the votes are properly tabulated,” he said.
The United Democratic Party (UDP) leader said in doing so, if different results are announced from what they have, his party will also announce what they have;
“If What they have is different from ours, ‘Walahi’ you will announce yours and we will announce ours. And we know that the Gambian people will definitely take what is announced by the People’s representative. If you allow the NPP to control the Councils you are allowing NPP to use the Councils as honeycombs,” He said.
The Secretary-General and Party leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP) Lawyer Ousainou Darboe made these remarks honorable KK Barrow’s victory celebration in Gunjur on Saturday, February 11th, 2023.
