By Omar Bah The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) has commenced a ten-day countrywide parliamentary reorientation tour ahead of the national assembly election in April. According to the party’s public relation officer, Mamadou M5 Jallow, the tour which is led by the party’s National Youth Mobilizer Modou MC Cham is meant to guide and as well to observe constituency selection process for the upcoming parliamentary polls. Speaking to The Standard yesterday, the GDC public relations officer said the party is exponentially growing rapidly and that there will be no boundaries, in their crusade for the assembly election. “We are a party that always espouses the spirit of inclusivity and unity, Gambia first before anything else is our motto. That sense of nationalism needs to be nurtured and fostered, one Gambia, one people by a common national purpose, the betterment of our country,” the GDC public relation officer said. Meanwhile, the party’s national youth Mobiliser, Modou MC Cham said the ten day nationwide tour for the upcoming National Assembly election is in full swing. He said: “We will conduct meetings at Illiasa, Nyang Sanjal, Kaur, lower and upper Saloum and eventually Wuli East and Wuli West to get the various elected representatives chosen by their locality to represent them in the National Assembly to familiarize themselves with the people and articulate their plans and packages if elected”. The GDC youth Mobiliser further noted that the entourage was met with resounding welcomes at lower Baddibu and Central Baddibu. This he said was marked with cross carpeting of the former ruling party’s regional mobilizer Mansa Secka in Lower Baddibu to the GDC. “This development yielded a positive multiplier effect on having lots of APRC and other party supporters joining GDC in the future,” he said. He said the same trend was witnessed in Central Baddibu, where he said the district chairman, councilor, a member of parliament and 6 ‘Yaye Compins’ also cross carpeted and pledged allegiance to the party. “This is a good sign for the party and it will help us win as much seats as possible in the April 6th, 2017 parliamentarian election. The party will grow, and will be gigantic, we will work our hearts to make it happen,” he concluded.]]>
