Dictator Yahya Jammeh has announced his opposition to the APRC/NPP political merger. Jammeh was speaking today in a direct phone conversation with his supporters in his home village Kanilai, from his Equatorial Guinea home.  Jammeh’s statement has laid to rest as to whether he was in support of the new political merger that was formed between his APRC and the NPP. He has distanced himself from the political merger.

It is a victorious day for the APRC splinter group opposing the APRC/NPP alliance. No word has been heard from Fabakary Tombong Jatta’s team yet on Jammeh’s latest pronouncement.

The APRC group opposing the political merger are holding a rally in Kanilai tonight.


Jammeh has advised his supporters to form an alliance with The Gambia Alliance for National Unity (GANU), a party led by his former Justice Minister Sheikh Tijan Hydara.

The following APRC folks have been tasked to work with GANU.

1. Abdou Jarju
2. Bakary Saibo Sanneh
