The National Reconciliation Party (NRP) Minority Leader in the National Assembly Samba Jallow, is said to be in Morocco. He is on a mission there. NRP insiders said Jallow is not happy with the recent Freedom Newspaper publication about their leader Hamat Bah, wanting to handover the party to Adama Barrow. Jallow is the MP for the Niamina Dankunku Constituency. He is likely going to convene a press conference to debunk our piece. We are looking forward to hearing his own side of the story. We standby our story.
There is a new deal being flooded within the NRP pro-Hamat Bah/Adama Barrow camp. We have been briefed about a possible merger between the NRP and Barrow’s camp. Hamat Bah, according to NRP sources, said he can no longer finance his party—the NRP. Bah wants to see a merger (Coalition) between the NRP and Barrow’s upcoming political front. He also wants Barrow to finance his party’s Extra-Ordinary Congress which is due later this year.
One of the conditions for the proposed merger, was for Adama Barrow to ensure that the NRP’s assets are secured and protected. The party also wants Barrow to consider allocating them the following positions: Vice President, Speaker of the National Assembly, and some Ministerial positions.
Minority Leader Samba Bah, and his team intend to embark on a consultation tour of the country, on August 26th 2019, provided that Adama Barrow agrees to finance their tour. We are keenly monitoring developments at the NRP. Stay tuned.
