He said: “We the government and people of The Gambia hereby make it very clear to the European Union and any outside bloc that wants to impose acceptance of homosexuals as a pre-condition for aid that we will never accept that conditionality no matter how much aid is involved. As from today, we are no longer going to entertain any dialogue on the issue with the European Union or any other foreign power for that matter. Our country’s socio-economic development depends only on the Almighty Allah’s benevolence. We also hereby declare that The Gambia will always be an independent, dignified and Allah-worshipping Muslim country where our way of life; our laws will be based on our Islamic values, that is, the strict adherence to our Islamic faith. This being the case, any agreement, convention or protocol that is at variance with our Islamic faith, economic prosperity and our national security interest will be surely rejected outright. We will never be a party to such decadence and will never ratify such conventions. Our laws are promulgated to ensure peace, security and our African and Islamic heritage and will be strengthened and enforced to the letter and spirit and will not be repealed.
“As an independent Muslim country, we will not be tied to any bloc that promotes decadence and ungodly behaviour that are not only Satanic, but they are also detrimental to human existence, such as homosexuality; especially when it is used as a precondition for receiving aid. In fact, homosexuality has no place in our African heritage more so our Islamic values. As Africans, we will also work with all Africans to put an end to the mass murder of young Africans and African migrants on European shores with whatever means necessary. As we will not sit down and watch this racist genocide continue unabated. If the European Union is really interested in the protection of homosexuals in Africa as a human right; why are they slaughtering young and decent African migrants in their thousands on European soil? The people of The Gambia in particular and Africa in general can no longer be fooled, exploited or subjugated in this twenty-first century and beyond. We hereby call on all Africans to stand up to defend our race against the phenomena of racism and violence against the black race. Africa is a continent and not a village and is, therefore, strong enough to stand against this brutal killing of young people simply because they are blacks. When Europe was very poor and on the verge of mass starvation they came to Africa and looted our resources through extraordinary brutality for more than 400 years; leaving behind a desolate and a highly underdeveloped African continent”.
The minister known as ‘Action Man’ who is the son of the pan-Africanist, pan-Islamic politician IM Jahumpa, ascribed Africa’s current state of poverty and backwardness to European exploitation, while delivering a rallying call for Africans to stand against European imperialism.
“The consequences of European occupation of Africa range from abject poverty and reversing the continent back to the stone-age with endless proxy wars and endemic destitution. Today in the twenty-first century, all Africans should stand up shoulder to shoulder to put up a definitive end to this humiliation and subjugation of our race. In doing so, we should be aware also that there are certain African leaders that are working for them in this evil and racist crusade against Africa and Africans. They facilitate the continuous looting of African resources by the same forces that enslaved Africans; who still believe that we blacks are monkeys and not human and, therefore, should not benefit from our Allah-given vast natural resources that we have on the African continent. This being the case, the Republic of The Gambia will never be a party to the so-called EPA with the European Union as it is designed to continue the same exploitation and impoverishment of the African continent. We will rather die than be colonised twice, enslaved twice and be robbed of our resources; our dignity and our humanity twice. Our relationship with any country or any bloc will be based on mutual respect and the respect of the sovereignty and independence and religious values of our country. We will no longer be a member of any sub-regional, regional and international bloc or organisation that will allow the continuous racist exploitation and humiliation and the looting of the African continent in particular and the black race in general.
“In conclusion, we are no longer going to entertain and dialogue with the European Union either directly or through the sub-regional, regional and international blocs to which we are members. Allah willing, we will continue to develop our country in dignity and prosperity with our independence and Islamic values intact. We will also continue to depend on and worship only the Almighty Allah. It is high time that we Africans wake up from our deep and detrimental coma. If the case of Ebola is not a glaring example to all Africans then not only wouldn’t we come out of our comatose position, but we will become extinct. While Africans are dying of Ebola, Europeans that is whites, are being cured of Ebola. The message is very clear for even frogs to understand. Why can’t we Africans and our leaders understand this situation. As Gambians in particular and blacks in general, we will defend our Islamic religion; we will defend our independence, dignity and black race at any price. We will never be any white man’s punch bag again.”]]>
