“We need Adama Barrow; we do not need old Pa,” Pa Njie Girigara declares, as he took swipe at Ousainou Darboe, the leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP).
In a brief and captivating speech, Pa Njie Girigara, recalled the campaign phrase that was coined by the APRC to caricature Lawyer Darboe during Jammeh’s twenty two years rule. The phrase was: We need Jammeh; we do not need old Pa.”
Pa Njie Grigara was among the financiers of Mr. Darboe’s UDP party. He had committed millions of dalasis to support the UDP past elections bid. He later extended a similar help to Mama Kandeh’s GDC Party.
Pa Njie has joined President Barrow’s base. He used his address to reassure Barrow that Gambians are behind him.
In his address, Mr. Njie said, he is confident that come 2021, President Barrow will win the elections. He recalled that Sir Dawda’s PPP party was launched in Brikama.
Pa Njie was accorded a standing ovation after his masterpiece speech. He was embraced by President Barrow and his delegation. They all shook hands with Njie.
Majanko Samusa also said Barrow’s political party was officially launched on Saturday in Brikama. Like Pa Njie, Samusa, said he is also confident that Barrow is going to sweep the polls come the 2021 elections.
