Ebrima Sorrie Bah, Secretary General of Gambia For Five Years and Peace Building group has confirmed forming a political party.
“It is very true. I am about to meet my executive for a meeting. We are working out the modalities for the registration,” he told Kerr Fatou in a phone conversation.
The party is called Gambia Jamaa Party (GJP).
Prior to this development, Ebrima was an active member of ‘The Gambia For Five Years’ group, which is widely regarded as pro-government, set up to counter the ‘3 Years Jotna’ group which demanded President Barrow to keep his transitional promise and step down at the end of three years’ promise he made during the Coalition 2016 campaign.
Although the group has been seen as political by many, they always maintained being apolitical but were motivated to defend the five-year constitutional mandate of the president.
