FTJ on APRC-GDC relations

By Omar Bah

The caretaker leader of the Alliance for Patriotic Re-orientation and Construction has said that his party and GDC have a good relationship since they are the only two opposition parties in the country.
He however maintained that the two parties did not sign any agreement.

Fabakary Tombong Jatta made these remarks at a press conference at his house called to thank his party militants for their contribution towards the successful staging of their recent political rally.
“Since we are the only opposition parties in the country right now, we thought it will be ideal for us to consult and share ideas whenever necessary, but I have to say that, we have not gone into any partnership or whatsoever with any part yet,” he said.

Jatta said the APRC has no grudges against any political party in the country because they believe every political party has a right to exist.

He maintained his position that the APRC will never disassociate itself with former President Jammeh.
On the recent rally, Jatta alleged that some government officials questioned NAWEC why they gave the APRC uninterrupted electricity supply during their rally.

“I want to say that this is not true, because throughout the rally we used generators. I mean we have not used a single minute of NAWEC electricity that day,” he said.

Meanwhile, the APRC Mobiliser General Yankuba Colley said those who are claiming that their recent rally was occupied by mainly people from Casamance underestimate APRC’s popularity.
“In fact to prove those doubters wrong I want to inform them the border between Gambia and Casamance was clandestinely closed two days before the rally,” he said.
