The leader of the National Reconciliation Party has said that his party’s support for President Adama Barrow is unshakeable, adding that the party is committed to negotiating with the NPP leadership for the complete merger of the two parties in the future.
Hamat Bah made this revelation while addressing his supporters at the party’s national congress in Ngaiyen Sanjal Saturday.
“We want to strengthen democracy and the politics of Adama Barrow, which is development to ensure that Gambians are pulled out of poverty,” Mr Bah said.
By doing so, he continued, we will strengthen this government, promote good governance in this country.
The NRP leader further called on his supporters to remain firm and solid behind Barrow and respect all political players in the field.
