Opposition Gambia Democratic Congress administrative secretary, Samba Baldeh has confirmed that Modou MC Cham Jr has been convinced by the party’s council of elders to take the position of national campaign manager. Mr Cham, arguably the GDC’s most vocal executive member, announced a few weeks ago that he was not going to seek re-election as national youth president, a position he held for four years. This followed his famous visit to State House which fueled rumors that he may cross carpet to the NPP. He has since denied ever wanting to go to the president’s party.
But in an audio obtained by The Standard, the GDC administrative secretary, Samba Baldeh said Mr Cham has accepted to take the position after series of engagements with the party’s council of elders. “I want to thank the council of elders for their tremendous efforts in convincing MC Cham to finally accept to take a position in the party,” he said.
