I desire to thank the total patriotic Gambians, every Gambian who’s pattern oriented. As from nowadays, I desire to effect it very determined that I have taken cumbersome management of the APRC occasion as acknowledged within the structure of the APRC as supreme chief. I’m the flagbearer and I’m the occasion chairman and I desire to effect that determined.
The APRC occasion is right here to protect pattern… the enchancment of the country, the peace and security the set all of us no topic tribe, whether or no longer you are filthy rich or sorrowful, the set you tiny one can stir to faculty gratis, from predominant faculty to college and that is what goes to proceed. We just isn’t any longer going to allign ourselves to any occasion, or any circulate that is taking Gambia backwards and extinguish the infrastructure which have taken 22 years to carry out, it is not any longer going to happen. There may be not any such thing as a alliance with any occasion that has destroyed The Gambia for the previous four years.
As a democratic occasion, we are in a position to no longer forestall any one from… It’s not in fact essential what your base, space is, we are in a position to no longer forestall you from going and allying yourself with any assorted occasion. In that case, you have already removed yourself from the APRC. So all these that are with the NPP, I am no longer approving it, we’re no longer going to allign with NPP, we’re alligning ourselves with GANU occasion.
Let me effect it very determined why I kept light for so long: what we name paswarr (winnow) in native language became what became happening and if I have spoken the traitors wouldn’t were identified. That’s why I kept light so long. And these these that left the occasion by no map had my blessing, by no map had my consent or permission to chat about an alliance with any occasion. Those that have left the occasion for assorted occasions… Members of the govt.who have left the occasion and went to price up for one more occasion, I don’t have any issues with that but they’re hereby being modified by the following of us: Honourable Abdou Jarju, Honourable Bakaray Saibo Sanneh, Muhammed Lamin Jammeh, Yahya Bamba, Honourable Jerrending Sanyang, Honourable Matarr Kujabi, Honourable Ebou Sambou, Honourable Omar Mamburay, Pa Modou Mbowe, Regina Williams, [and] Habib Secka. These crew will work with the GANU crew on the total lot. We’ll be in a position to work together as a crew.
I desire to effect it very determined: APRC, the A stands for Alliance, Patriotic, Reorientation and Building. I desire to apologise to the total occasion militants, the total Gambian of us for retaining light for so long. But as I stated the map of winnowing became no longer total, because it did not attain the APRC occasion. As a outcome of all people must be winnowed, we winnow the total lot and resolve what’s correct. And so now that the occasion has furthermore been piece of the winnowing in conjunction with Kanilai, my fatherland, no longer is time for me to chat and this is why I am talking. But I am sorry for the silence, it has created so a lot of issues, many folks were at a loss for words. I am sorry about that.
As from now, APRC my occasion, our occasion, your occasion, is with GANU and no assorted occasion. I desire to thank all individuals who stood up for the truth, who stood up for the national pattern, national security, national prosperity, national happiness, [those] who stood on the abet of me all along in conjunction with these within the diaspora who were defending me. I desire to make sure you that as from now even their conferences, I will be becoming a member of the conferences.
I desire to charm to all Gambians, all occasions… The abominable insulting of of us and their mothers just isn’t any longer blessing the country but it absolutely’s a curse for the reason that Almighty Allah would not love diverse one who believes in Him, who worships Him to be insulting of us for whatever motive in conjunction with insulting of us’s mothers. That’s terribly abominable, that is unacceptable within the APRC and GANU occasion. As soon as we conduct our campaign, we’re no longer going to insult any one, we’re no longer going to castigate any one, we’re going to home the enchancment of the country as has came about within the previous 22 years that I became in vitality. We handle pattern, fabricate no longer be distracted by insult. Any one who insults you, factual ignore him if it is possible you’ll also. Please I am bright to you. But insulting each and each assorted’s mother would not elevate peace. The Almighty Allah, as Muslims is Haram, as Christians it is Haram. So please even supposing they insult you, fabricate no longer insult abet. Please for the sake of the Almighty Allah and our faith. Insulting of us will elevate Allah’s exasperate upon the country and that just isn’t any longer correct. That’s why of us are suffering in The Gambia nowadays.
We now must strive towards to web our country and invent our country as it became completed below 22 years of my rule.
My final impart to you is, to effect it very determined: there can no longer be any pattern in a country that just isn’t any longer secured, the set there just isn’t any security, there just isn’t any peace, of us are divided, of us are insulting each and each assorted’s mothers, of us are asserting abominable issues – nasty language. Right here’s unacceptable. For the APRC. And these that desire to map to the APRC and GANU, you are welcome. Advance and join but there’ll be no insults allowed.
What is going down within the country… The country is sinking quicker than the astronomical and we now have got to assign the country. For us to assign the country, we need the hands of all of us, patriotic Gambians, for us to work together and effect away with what’s going down in our country.
Let me effect it clearer what has been obvious in some unspecified time in the future of: I’m no longer a tribalist, I’m a citizen and my occasion just isn’t any longer a tribalist occasion. I have considered from my performance, I did not kick any one out of blueprint of enterprise because he is from one more tribe. I’m in a position to also no longer ever be a tribalist, I’m a Muslim and tribalism is Haram in Islam. We’re all created by the identical Almighty Allah. I’m a citizen, no longer a tribalist. APRC is a patriotic occasion and it is not any longer going to be a tribal occasion, so furthermore GANU. So, let’s work together and effect certain that that we unit all Gambians for the nice thing about all Gambians.
