UDP and GPDP big wigs put the records straight
Thursday, May 15, 2008
I must thank Mr Femi Peters, the campaign manager of UDP and Mr Henry Gomez the secretary general of the GPDP for accepting the move made by Lamin Waa Juwara. These two gentlemen prove to The Gambian populace that Waa Juwara's action to defect to the ruling government is part of his constitutional right.
This is the beauty of democracy; that is to be accorded one his/her constitutional and democratic rights. The two top brass of this parties, UDP and GPDP, ought to be commended for their candid and mature opinion on Waa Juwara's switch of allegiance to the APRC.
I want to salute the duo and never to relent in their move as the saying goes "a harmful truth is better than a useful lie". Juwara by joining the APRC party opted for progression not retrogression and again I am pleased to know Juwara himself recognises that.
