By Omar Bah

Presidential aspirant Omar Beyai, who first made a name for himself when he declared he was ready to take charge of APRC after Jammeh left, has said that the only way for the Coalition government to do justice for Solo Sandeng and his family is to quickly put in place a comprehensive electoral reform.

”That is what Solo died for. The government should work even harder to achieve that more than anything else,” the former APRC vanguard, who claimed to have never worked under the former President Jammeh told The Standard yesterday.

Beyai said anything less than that will mean they have forgotten Solo Sandeng and the cause that he died for.
Beyai further said the government’s decision to only reform the upper age limit suggests they want to cater for only some people like Ousainou Darboe and Fatoumatta Jalllow-Tambajang and, according to him, this is unfair to the late Sandeng and his family.

“Yes, the new government is trying but we have to admit that they falling behind time in many areas,” he said.
He said the government must first clear the confusion in people’s mind as to who is giving the orders “between President Adama Barrow and Ousainou Darboe.”He criticised Mr Darboe for causing confusion with his recent comments on the Coalition MOU. “I just cannot still believe why Darboe is touching on that and what is he even trying to achieve?” Beyai quizzed.
