The Gambians have made a statement yesterday as tens of thousands of APRC party loyalists and supporters accorded the President a rock star welcome to the Election House as he filed in his nomination papers for the December presidential poll.
As the Latin saying goes, Vox Populi, Vox Dei, translating in English that the voice of the people is the voice of God, the numbers for the President in each of the four elections he has contested has increased exponentially and this year’s polls would be no different. He is expected to be given another landslide mandate.
As per the Election Act of The Gambia, it is a requirement that atleast 5,000 registered voters should back the candidature of a presidential aspirant with atleast 200 voters from each of the seven administrative regions but as the APRC Campaign Manager Balla Garba Jahumpa noted, 50,000 accompanied the incumbent’s nomination to the Independent Electoral Commission. This alone is another clear manifestation of Gambians’ undivided support and loyalty to the leader of the Great July 22nd Revolution and we are in no doubt that those numbers would be turned into votes come December 1. Therefore, there is only going to be one winner when the final results are announced on December 2, and that man is President Jammeh.
We know we owe that to him by returning thanks and appreciation to Babili Mansa for bringing growth to every Gambian in all spheres of our national development but the President been the kindhearted, caring leader and father to all he is, he has already assured us of free medical care by 2021. Gambians will never exchange President Jammeh with any other person.
