‘Join the incumbent for development’ - GPDP Leader
Wednesday, January 07, 2009
The leader of the opposition Gambia People’s Democratic Party (GPDP), Henry Gomez, has called on Gambians, irrespective of political and other related differences, to put all hands on deck and join the incumbent for the development of country.
"For The Gambia to achieve her development goals, ranging from political, human and socio-economic development, all Gambians have to work together. In life, there is time for everything. If it is time for politics, we should speak and go for politics like wise other aspects of life.
The Gambia belongs to all Gambians; we must develop the spirit of collective work in order to achieve our objectives. We must all join the incumbent APRC party, under the leadership of Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh, president of The Gambia, and work towards developing this country," he stressed.
The GPDP leader was speaking during an interview with the Daily Observer, recently. He urged all politicians in the country to disregard their political affiliations and work for the best interest of Gambians, saying ‘no body will come from outside, to develop this country for us. Its our collective responsibility in maintaining the peace and stability of The Gambia.
He then extended sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Gambian leader and the entire nation on the occasion of Christmas and wish all and sundry, a happy New Year 2009. The GPDP leader recognised the current surge in global economic crisis, especially the high food and other related prices. He renewed his call for Gambians to answer to the president’s back-to-the land call to ensure food self-sufficiency.
Mr Gomez then assured Gambians of his party’s determination towards the development of The Gambia. He also condemned in strong terms the attitudes of the convicted British couple, hoping that their sentence will serve as a deterrent for others, forcing all to respect and obey the laws of The Gambia.
