Basse NAM urges SIC to mediate between Barrow and Darboe


By Amadou Jadama

The National Assembly Member for Basse has called on the Supreme Islamic Council to initiate and lead dialogue between President Adama Barrow and UDP leader Ousainu Darboe, saying such an initiative will greatly help ease anxiety and tension as election approaches.

Muhammed Magassy, who was elected as an independent candidate, told The Standard that the two personalities who used to work closely should not be allowed to become enemies. “Both of them enjoy great respect among Gambian people and therefore peace between them means peace for the entire people of The Gambia. I therefore enjoin religious leaders such as the SIC to talk to the two,” Magassy said.


The Basse NAM said there is no need for any aggressive enmity and religious leaders can work to mend the difference between the two.
