Darboe tells Gambians to avoid selling votes


The United Democratic Party leader has urged Gambians to resist attempts by some political parties to buy their votes.

Addressing a rally at Bati Ndarr, Upper Saloum, Ousainu Darboe said: “You should ensure that you are fully involved in the process of choosing the next president of The Gambia on 4th December. I am pleading with you all not to sell your voter cards to anyone; don’t allow yourselves to be deceived by anyone giving you money to vote for them.

“I want to let you know that someone who truly wants to work for you and solve the daily problems in this country, would not give you money and ask you to vote for him.”


The UDP leader also rubbished rumours that the tractors given to farmers by former president Yahya Jammeh were taken away by him.

“I was neither the president nor the minister of agriculture, so how and why would I take those tractors from you? Hamat Bah has told you all these lies only to stain my name. The government could not give them back those tractors because they sold them and said that the commission gave them the authority to do so,” he said.

He said Hamat Bah sold his party NRP to Adama Barrow for his interest and pocket.
