Over 60 supporters of the opposition National Reconciliation Party (NRP) drawn from Sinchu Alhagie, Wellingara and Brikama have switched allegiance to the ruling APRC on Saturday during a political rally held in Sinchu Alhagie.

In an interview with the Daily Observer, Nurudeen Ousman said, “We were in the NRP before but looking at what President Jammeh has done and what we have seen, we are convinced enough to join the ruling party. President Jammeh has done enough for the youth and the youth are going to vote for him to win the election.”

According to him, there are no genuine opposition politicians in the country and therefore, they will follow the leader that Allah has put in place.
