Addressing hundres of supporters at Old Yundum recently , the leader and Secretary General of the Unite Democratic Party (UDP Ousainou Darboe, described President Adama Barrow dishonorable , one who do not keep to his words.
“How can you claim to be a credible leader when you deceive people? You are a leader who has been acting very dishonorably. We don’t want that type of leaders in this country. We need leaders who will live up to their words but not leaders who will tell people you can say anything when campaigning and do the opposite when elected,” he said.
Darboe called on Gambians to be wise when choosing their leaders, adding the choice people made in 2016 to make Barrow their leader was a misfortune.
The UDP leader has said he will link President Adama Barrow with drug dealers, unless he Barrow provides clear evidence on how he managed to purchase ten brand new Toyota Hilux pick-ups.
The UDP leader whiles ddressing supporters on Sunday, said: “I want (you) Barrow to tell me the cost of those Toyota Hilux vehicles and source of their funding because they were consigned to you as a person”.
If you fail to do so, I will tell Gambians that you are dealing with drug dealers. We saw a document that shows that the vehicles were purchased in your name.
“If you don’t set the records straight, I will personally tell Gambians that the drug dealers are the ones giving you money to buy these Luxury vehicles. I put the burden on you to extricate yourself from the rumors going round that your government is dealing in drugs. If you don’t tell Gambians where you get the money with documentary proofs,” he said.
Darboe added he will invite all Gambians and ask them to conclude that Barrow is dealing with criminals and misleading people.
“That is my conclusion. But if you come out with evidence to show that you are not dealing with criminals, we will respect you and conclude that you are not dealing with criminals,” he said.
He advised UDP supporters to secure voter’s cards and ensure that they campaign for people to join the party ahead of the December presidential election.
“I don’t know whether you will believe it or not but on December 5th, the President- elect will be Ousainu Darboe, there is nothing stopping that with the help of Allah,” he asserted.
Darboe added Barrow’s often-quoted proverb that the knife that killed the lion is still at the State House, is misconstrued because that knife is the yellow knife of the UDP not Adama Barrow.
