United Democratic Party (UDP) Secretary-General and Party Leader Lawyer Ousainu Darbo has described President Adama Barrow as “President Campaign Manager” as his party celebrates its victory in the local government elections in Kotu.
“I heard the president reduced himself to a campaign manager for all his candidates. He goes around late at night. I even understand he did house-to-house (Campaign). Mr. Campaign Manager, you have failed woefully. You try to sell the agenda of your minister. I feel sorry for Bakary (Badjie) because Adama is telling him he cannot sell his Agenda. He said Seedy Ceesay cannot sell himself. You have to go and sell him but Mr. President campaign manager, Gambians have shown you where power lies and not in your hands. Power belongs to people, not you and that’s what they have shown. If you had the power you would have put all your candidates in charge of the councils but you don’t have the power,” Darboe said.
The opposition United Democratic Party won in Banjul, Kanifing Municipality, West Coast Region, and Lower River Region while the president’s party won Basse, Kerewan, CRR North, and CRR South in the just concluded local government election.
