What went wrong? We were made to understand that Essa Sey was tipped up for a Diplomatic trainer job at the Foreign Ministry, but things never materialized as intended. He was supposed to train the new batch of foreign service staffers, according to a UDP source, familiar with the story. For some unknown reasons, the former Gambian Ambassador to the United States, was replaced by Baboucarr Blaise Jagne, the former Gambian Ambassador to the United Nations.

On the eve of the induction of the new foreign service hires, Sey took onto Facebook saying that he has changed his mind towards the Barrow State House. He said there are folks in the administration, who hated him. He also said he was not a job-seeker in his Facebook tirade.

“Thank you Gambians! As you already know some of us have been spending time and energy sharing views all these years alongside exposing fatal side effects which could affect the fabric of our society. That said, the bitter side of the narration is that it has come to a point where other countries see more value in what some of us can offer than our own homeland. So if you miss seeing me share those views or exposing what was investigated know that we are yet to have a leadership that honors and values our input. I for one cannot continue talking to a leader or leadership that would rather not listen or those on top hate some of us with passion. I have of course changed my mind towards State House after discovering a lot so far,” Sey wrote on his Facebook page. 

“As far as some of us are HATED why should we wait to be told in the open? We shall see if Sey Pulloh will lose..Alhamdulillaah!!! Certainly those who failed to listen or those who think we should run after them for sharing those advises will come to understand how much they have missed the way In Shaa Allah. One day many will come to realize the difference between what is factual and what is emotional,” he added. 

According to our UDP source, Mr. Sey met Ousainou Darboe, the Foreign Minister of the Gambia, during his month-long visit to the West African country. The duo had a fruitful and friendly chat. The meeting took place at Darboe’s home in Pipeline.

It is not clear if Mr. Darboe had made a false job promise to Essa Sey, but what is evident though Sey has lately been critical of the regime on social media. He has been flooding his Facebook timeline with all sort of messages. 

Mr. Sey could not be reached for comment. 

Mr. Sey was Yahya Jammeh’s Ambassador to Washington DC. He was later fired.

Mr. Sey briefly worked at the Foreign Ministry, before he was assigned to the Paris Mission, and later posted to Taiwan as an Ambassador. He also worked at the United Nations as a Diplomat during his foreign service stint with the Gambia government.  

Below is a piece written by Essa Sey on the eve of the induction of the new foreign service hires.

Thank you Gambians! As you already know some of us have been spending time and energy sharing views all these years alongside exposing fatal side effects which could affect the fabric of our society.

So if you miss seeing me share those views or exposing what was investigated know that we are yet to have a leadership that honors and values our input.

Certainly those who failed to listen or those who think we should run after them for sharing those advises will come to understand how much they have missed the way In Shaa Allah. One day many will come to realize the difference between what is factual and what is emotional.

The best way for some people to learn is by leaving them to see and feel adverse effects one would have never wished them go through. 

No doubt Essa will be vindicated very soon in Shaa Allah until then wait and see where it will all end! When the unsaid and the unseen starts unfolding before our eyes we will all be here to see it in Shaa Allah. Am sorry to those who see value in what I do but some of us ARE HATED by people calling themselves our leaders I have clear evidence and will indeed shake the ground when I start defending myself in Shaa Allah.

Thanks anyway.
