“I would like to address some opposition parties discussing President Barrow; they have significant internal conflicts to resolve. Let them address those issues before focusing on President Barrow. It is clear that I am the NPP’s leader, Secretary General, and candidate. While they debate over their next candidate, some labeling others as too old or too young , we are ready for any opponent, whether experienced or not. We believe that hard work is rewarded by God, and we have worked diligently,” President Barrow stated.
