President Says They Have The Strongest Party
By Buba Gagigo
President Barrow, the Secretary General and leader of the National People’s Party [NPP] said that the NPP together with other parties which joined them are the strongest political group in the country.
The president made this comment while addressing a group of former national assembly members and governors who called on him last Saturday to pay allegiance to him.
“When we were going to Niamina for the by-elections, I called them for a meeting. What I told them was that the by-election is coming. Let’s go and show everyone that we are the ruling party. And I told them that they should believe that we are the strongest party because we have five to six parties with us. I told them I can be proven wrong, but I believe we are the strongest” the president said.
He added that people often called him a sleeping president but wondered how a sleeping president could achieve development projects in Banjul, Basse, Sandu, Niani and NBR.
“If a sleeping president can initiate all these projects, then if he wakes up from sleep his oppositions would cease to exist. They are just being hypocritical,” he said.
