The regional executive committee of the ruling Alliance for Patriotic Re-orientation and Construction (APRC) in the Central River Region on Saturday September 17, held a stakeholders meeting in Kaur, in Lower Saloum District, CRR North.
The meeting brought together APRC militants across the constituency and it was graced by the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Benjamin A. Roberts, the Governor of the Region Alhaji Omar Khan and many others.
Addressing party militants, Minister Roberts called on them to put aside their individual differences and unite as one in the interest of the party. He implored on the people of the area to put the interest of the party first before their personal interests. He further highlighted on the numerous developments registered by President Jammeh and the APRC party in the past 22 years.
The Regional Governor also spoke extensively on the meeting, saying that it would help to erase their political differences. He advised them not to allow some disgruntled elements to divide them, as together they are strong. He pointed out that President Jammeh has the interest of the Gambians at heart and urged them to cement their support for him.
The APRC Regional Chairperson Alhaji Baboucarr Jobe and the Chief of Upper Saloum Alhaji Malick Mbye both said the July 22nd Revolution has brought many developments for Gambian people, and further called on the people of Lower Saloum not to listen to the oppositions because all what they are saying are verbose and cannot bring any development in the country.
The APRC Chairman of Lower Saloum Constituency, Alhaji Doro Bah, Aka Yateh Fye, Emily Nyan, and Eliman Bah all assured their unflinching support for President Jammeh and the APRC party. They expressed their regret in voting for an independent opposition candidate during the 2015 National Assembly by-election and promised to unseat him in the forthcoming elections in 2017.
