The former Vice President Fatoumatta Jallow Tambajang has declined an offer for an appointment to an unspecified position in Foreign Service, the presidency said on Wednesday.
“The former vice president said she declined to serve in Foreign Service base on professional reasons,” the director of press Amie Bojang told journalists.
“President Barrow also accepted the resignation of the former vice president Fatoumatta Tambajang from the government and the offer to serve in the Foreign Service in a letter dated 4th of July,” she said.
Asked to specify the position the former VP was assigned, Madam Bojang responded: “I am not in a position to tell you which position was offered to her.”
Madame Jallow, who served as the country’s vice president for one year six months, was relieved of her responsibilities last month along with three ministers.
Speaking further, Madam Bojang said the fishmeal companies in Sanyang and Kartong have been closed until further notice.
She also said the printing of the national identity cards has been finally contracted to Semlex and that the detail of the contract is being reviewed.
She said Mamour Jobe, the former deputy IGP is now confirmed as the IGP and Abdoulie Sanyang is his deputy.
