So if you are giving him the platform to instigate violence, I am warning you since you are the party leader. I’m warning you seriously” I will notify IEC to warn you Mama Kandeh. ” Said the president.
He further described Mama Kandeh as a desperate person who will do everything for votes “No matter how desperately you need people, you should know what to do. We know he is desperate and will do anything but be careful Mama Kandeh. Otherwise you will know that this country has laws and nobody is above these laws. Even me the president, I’m governed by these laws”
The president highlights that because he is also governed by law, that’s why he did not come with any governors or government vehicle on his campaign.
“Even the other NPP members who accompany me on the tour all came with private vehicles. That never happened during former president jammeh’s time.” Echoed the NPP Leader.
Barrow emphasizes that he is a peaceful leader and that folks should not take that for granted. ” I’m a peaceful president, I talk peace, I want peace for this country and peace will remain in the country. So for that being the case, let us respect the Law, if I the president respect the Law, I see no reason why Mama Kandeh will have powers to violate the law, the law will take its course.” Barrow frowned
