‘Jammeh loyalists should not be underestimated’

By Tabora Bojang

The chief executive officer of Farm4Life, a Gambian-UK youth charitable organization, has warned the Barrow government against complacency of “possible threats posed by loyalists of former President Jammeh, three of whom made their way back into the country after one year in exile.”

Mustapha Mansary who was speaking to The Standard yesterday said government should prioritize and work on the security of the nation as it is obligatory to protect the lives and properties of the citizens.
“The security situation of the new Gambia has called for a great concern for every patriotic citizen. The return of the two Jammeh loyalists, happily and comfortably through our only national airport to their respective houses without security interception, has triggered fear and alarm for security reform in our country,” Mansary said.

According to the youth entrepreneur, the “former president and his loyalists should not be underestimated, because they alongside Jammeh fled the country unwillingly and Jammeh still has many loyalists in all the security fraternities of the nation.”
“With due respect I am urging the government to act fast on security matters and invest in security and in its apparatus in order to ensure proper security of the nation which should be fundamentally and highly prioritized because no development can occur without peace and security,” he said.
