Sheikhna Faal, the Press Secretary of The Gambia Action Party has proclaimed that the Gambia lost its sovereignty under the leadership of President Adama Barrow through a one-sided agreement signed with the Senegalese President, Macky Sall. He said an agreement that will only benefit Senegal.
He made this remark following the recent publication of reports in the local daily newspaper which stated that the Gambia has lost trade to Senegal, which he said was the cause of irresponsible by the government. Added that it is another timing bomb ready to explode.
Faal said Gambians are facing a lot of challenges from one sector to another, yet, the Gambia government is not providing any tangible strategy to address the plight of the Gambians. He said the country has lost its internal security to the Senegalese Forces under Barrow’s administration.
He added that the most stressful part of it, is that even the country’s National documents that should be confidential are in the hands of Senegalese and other foreigners on the rise which is a security threat if not handled properly and that most of the food consumed in the country are imported from Senegal and the government empowered most of the Senegalese entrepreneurs to the detriment of Gambian businessmen and women.
“They have admitted to losing trade to Senegal due to the ports and it’s going to get worst because Barrow is married to Macky Sall and the only way is to get him out of office as soon as possible. I call on the civil society organizations, political parties, and the National Assembly to work on ways to impeach Barrow and get him out of the office or through any means accepted by our laws,” he said.
He went on to say it is better to do the right thing right now to avoid destroying the next generation because it will be too late to replace when damaged.
“However we have lost so much for the sake of getting rid of former President Yahya Jammeh, still it seems to be a repetition of what we have eradicated a few years ago through Barrow’s government,” he said.
