The leader of the United Democratic Party, Ousainou Darboe, has called on opposition APRC supporters and others to join the UDP and work for the development of the country.
Speaking on the campaign trail Darboe also urged the UDP supporters to open their arms to all those who are willing to come to the party and forget about past differences.
He pointed out that UDP has no grievances against any individual and called for unity among Gambians.
Darboe further added that UDP is a peaceful party that is open to all regardless of tribes. “We must continue to maintain our relationship at all times and reject any temptation to harm our long standing unity and one family existence,” he said.
Darboe saluted Abdoulie Suku Singhateh, the former APRC NAM for Lower Baddibou and his colleagues who cross-carpeted to the UDP, describing them as patriotic citizens and true believers in national interest.
For his part Abdoulie Suku Singhateh urged the electorate to vote for UDP candidates because they are the right candidates who can bring development for them. The tour party has now returned to the Kombos.
