The Gambian people showed it all when His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh Babili Mansa came out on Thursday, November 10, 2016 for his nomination as the APRC flag bearer in the upcoming December presidential election.
The huge crowd from all over the country in solidarity with the APRC candidate, His Excellency as it can be seen on the pictures herein no doubt dwarfed the combined number of supporters who showed up for other political Parties’ nominees earlier in the week.
Tens of thousands of APRC supporters turn up for his nomination. They received him from Sting Corner and escort him all the way to the IEC Election House on Bertil Harding Highway where his nomination papers were scrutinized like any other political party by the chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), Alieu Momarr Njai and his team of commission members, graced by the First Lady of the Islamic Republic of the Gambia, Her Excellency Madam Zineb Jammeh, the vice president, cabinet ministers as well as the APRC bigwigs, thus marking the end of nominations of candidates for the 2016 Presidential election.
The Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS), the social media and even world cable news servers such as the BBC all transmitted what was viewed as a very convincing gathering that cheered the Gambian leader and the First Lady Madam, Zineb Jammeh on their motorcade from the kombos right through to Banjul. That event was not only a show of strength but also an evidence of absolute loyalty to a remarkable leader who has really transformed the Gambia in all sphere of life.
