President Adama Barrow has said that he is confident that he may even go unopposed in the 2021 presidential election if he is able to achieve all his development aspirations outlined in the National Development Plan, NDP.
Addressing supporters at Sare Bojo village over the weekend, Barrow again said whosoever wants to be president must wait until 2021. “There can only be one president and that is the person the Gambian people elected. There is no other way or shortcut to State House and I am confident that if I achieve all my development plans, I will go unopposed in 2021.
I believe the only solution to our problems is work. There is lot of goodwill towards The Gambia. But we can only achieve our dreams if we speak with one language, especially the young people,” he told his jubilant supporters.
The President said his administration is focused on achieving the development plans stipulated in the NDP.
He again warned that people who are not in agreement with his development agenda should leave his bus or will be dropped off. He continued: “I want to call on Gambians to continue working hard for the interest of this country. I also want to encourage the civil servants to do all they can to help the government succeed. As the drivers, the civil service cannot afford to fail.”
President Barrow also promised that anything that comes in to the country in the name of Gambia will be utilized judiciously.
“I want to say that after my term as president if Gambia does not owe me I will not owe the country and whenever my term ends, I will request for an investigation into how I spent those monies and If I am found wanting, they can take me to Mile 2,” Barrow said.
