The Leader and Secretary General of Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) Kitabu Fatty has endorsed Essa Mbaye Faal as presidential aspirant for the December 4 election.
Fatty said the former TRRC lead Counsel is the “best” for the position.
“Prior to taking this decision Mr. Fatty had been approached by several Political Parties to join their campaign. However, after a period of thorough reflection and evaluation, both Mr. Fatty and the National Executive [Committee] of the PDP unanimously agreed that Mr. Essa Mbye Faal is the best person to lead our country at this time of great social and political change. His wealth of experience, in-depth knowledge of the law, his personal accomplishments and calm temperament, makes him unique among the competing candidates to steer the affairs of the country,” presidential aspirant Kitabu Fatty said on Facebook on Tuesday.
Fatty believes that with Mr Faal as President, The Gambia would change for the better; as such, his party decided to shelve their plans for the coming election and rallied behind Mr. Essa Mbye Faal for President 2021.
Essa Mbaye Faal last month announced that he would run for presidency in the December 4 election.
