GDC fights back
However, the GDC youth president Modou ‘MC’ Cham has also shared a writeup with this medium claiming that at least 300 NPP supporters defected to the GDC in CRR.
“Another successful weekend for the GDC party following a huge defection from the NPP to the party at Jallow Kunda village in Niani Constituency. Over 300 people ditched the failed president’s party to join the solution provider party under the auspicious leadership of Mamma Kandeh,” MC Cham said.
He said defectors expressed their disappointment over the government’s lack of direction.
