The people of North Bank Region have promised to increase the voter percentage for the ruling APRC candidate, come next month’s election.
The locals also used the platform to renew and reaffirm their undivided love and support to The Gambian leader, His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh Babili Mansa, stressing that they will never exchange him for any person.
The people of the region made the declaration on Monday night during a meeting held at the Farafenni Senior School football field as part of President Jammeh’s nationwide tour. The meeting was attended by thousands of APRC supporters including men and women, young and old.
The President is being accompanied on the tour by a high-powered delegation including Speaker of the National Assembly, cabinet ministers, APRC supporters, Nigerian Actors and Actresses, National Assembly Members, a representative from the Nigerian Senate amongst others.
Alhaji Saikou Jallow, Regional APRC chairman told the meeting that it is time for people to reciprocate the good things that President Jammeh has done for the people of The Gambia. “We will not only vote for President Jammeh but we will increase our percentage. NBR will emerge 1st position in this upcoming election,” he assured.
According to him, the country is today quite different from 22 years ago in terms of development. He thus called on Gambians to return thanks to Allah for giving them a leader like President Jammeh.
Fana Ceesay, women leader in NBR, said the President’s tour is not a campaign as his victory is already confirmed.
She noted that quality education and medical health care service are more affordable and accessible now than before.
“The people of NBR will never regret supporting APRC and President Jammeh. He has fulfilled all his promises to the people of NBR,” Ceesay told the meeting.
Tamsir Touray and Lambala Saho were both confident of a historic victory for the great APRC. They recounted on the poor state of living in the region before the advent of the Jammeh revolution, while thanking President Jammeh for making that a history now.
