Reacting to his Deputy Party Leader’s Resignation, Kebba Jallow, the party leader of the People’s Progressive Party says it is unfortunate that the news came at the wrong time.
“I also received the sad news in the morning that the deputy party leader resigned mainly due to his other engagements. He is studying at GTTI that’s why he cannot continue. Unfortunately, it came at the wrong time, a time we were contesting a very serious seat in the West Coast Region. We put up Jainaba and at this time hearing some sad news of somebody prominent among us resigning is not welcoming news.
“But never the less Muhammed has served diligently and sincerely with the party for so long. He served as a National Assembly Member for PPP which we cherish and will go down in history. He was elected at the Congress so we cannot go and appoint someone like that. We will sit as a committee after the election,” Kebba Jallow told Kerr Fatou.
