The leader of the opposition Gambia Democratic Congress, Mamma Kandeh, has called on President Adama Barrow to do himself a favor and step down to save his image.
Speaking to The Standard in an exclusive interview yesterday, Kandeh said Barrow had made it very clear when he was elected that he does not have the experience and he was relying on the people around him.
”But unfortunately those people around him are only interested to be the next president,” Kandeh alleged.
The GDC leader said since Barrow himself could not rely on his coalition colleagues for good advice, he should resign to save his own image.
He said if the Coalition government was speaking with one voice they should have at least shown Gambians one or two projects that they have initiated.
“This is why I said and I will continue to say that the change we have is negative because Gambians are disappointed,” he added.
Mr Kandeh said government is not seen or heard at a time when serious crimes are being committed, adding that the Coalition government was not prepared to lead but only to defeat Jammeh.
Kandeh said only the GDC is well prepared to effect the required changes that Gambians were yearning for after Yahya Jammeh.
Mr Kandeh, who visited the Serekunda Market yesterday, said he went there to campaign for the GDC mayoral aspirant in KMC and as well generate more support for the party in the municipality.
He said the party will henceforth focus their attention in KMC, Banjul and West Coast Region to boost their chances in the upcoming elections.
“We are aware of the challenge that lies ahead but we will surely confront them with help of God and support of the Gambian people.
“The visit will also us give the party and our Mayoral candidate the opportunity to access the needs of the people in the market so that when he gets into office, he will have the clear vision on where he should start from. I want to say that the market needs serious improvement,” he said.
