Gambia Opposition for Electoral Reform (GOFER) Meeting held on the 11th October 2016 at Kairaba Beach Hotel. Dr. Isatou Touray acknowledges and understands the concerns that followed, due to her absence in the meeting of the GOFER on Tuesday Oct 11, and deeply regrets this development. However her campaign wishes to inform all citizens that Isatou Touray remains highly committed to the unification of the opposition and appreciates the process that has been hatched to bring that about. Her commitment to the unity of the opposition remains unwavering as can be attested to by her consistent attendance in the unity talks so far.
In that regard, Dr. Touray wishes to call on all Gambians and stakeholders to continue to give support and prayers for the unity and victory of the opposition in the forthcoming elections. Her rationale for standing up as an independent candidate is wholly and solely premised on the need to bring the opposition parties together to salvage the country.
She reiterates her commitment to the on going dialogue towards a consensus candidate, as a necessary strategy to bring about genuine change for our nation and expresses her gratitude to the political parties and members of Gambia Opposition for Electoral Reform (GOFER).
