The People's Tour

UDP continues on the Countrywide Tour: Correcting misinformation, deceit, fabrications and insults:
Fellow Gambians, as duty calls, the willing answer. After the success of the first leg of our tour of the country, the United Democratic Party national executive committee has mandated us to continue on with regional tours. This is to reach out to areas we couldn't fully cover during the first leg.  We are touring the Kombo areas from June 11 to the 18 2015 with a brief interuption on June 14 2015 for a grand rally at Cedar Club in Serekunda.
The importantance of these tours is to continue to hammer home UDP’s requisite measures to expose the two decades of maladministration under a dictatorship in disguise as government. The tours will further remobilize our members to prepare them for the upcoming issues related to electoral calendar so that together we can get prepared to end the dictatorship in the Gambia through elections.
The first and the second leg of the tour has totally unmasked the “fear factor” that has encompassed the life of ordinary Gambians. The party will continue with that pattern of engagement to encourage Gambian people to muster the necessary courage and speak out openly against a government that has institutionalized corruption; betrayed the confidence of its people; continues to use deception to divide people through narrow fault lines of tribe and religion; and continually ignoring the plight of our farmers and youths.
Today, the whole country is engulfed in economic hardship with no end in sight. Corruption and corrupt practices continue to be chronically synonymous to the everyday life of the Gambian government where few cabal continue to plunder the nation’s resources. Farmers continue to be saddled in unending abject poverty because of the government’s inability to buy farmers’ groundnut.
The alarming rate at which the economy is declining to a near collapse points to the emptiness of a government that has nothing new to offer. The recent move by the dictatorship to forcefully regulate the free market should serve as a warning to IMF, World Bank, ADB, IDB, EU, USAID, EDF and other donor community that, assisting a failing government is tantamount prolonging the difficult climate Gambians are trapped in.
Today the president and his cabal of enablers have high jacked every facet of the economy elbowing out decent competition. Now almost the entire country felt betrayed by this dictatorship that has no interest of the Gambia at heart.
Now, more than ever, is the time to direct our energy towards demanding resolutely, the end to one man domination and an end to fear dominated politics. We as a people can only take so much. 20 years is the region every society takes urgency in ending strangulation and Mafioso style administration. Enough is enough. Stand with us in this important task of taking our country back from this brutal dictatorship. Should there be an obstruction in our legitimate constitutional mandate, we will stand our grounds as always.

Long live the Gambia

Long live the UDP
