GAMBIA CANNOT CLAIM “SOVEREIGNTY” WHEN WE BELONG TO GLOBAL GROUPS

By Dawda Baldeh

MC Cham Junior the National Youths President of The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC)  has said that Gambians cannot claim to be sovereign when the country belongs to many global groups and have signed  charters  including  good governance, respect for the human right law etc.;

The GDC Youth President  said for Gambia to be a sovereign state, it must annul the agreements, pull out  of the UN, AU, ECOWAS. We must stop running after them to borrow money, to stop sending out children to their expensive schools and so on he said.

The Gambia is a “sovereign state” but part of the global governance as we belong and sign international conventions and have signed to their charters for political, economic and security cooperation to respond to problems that affects more than one state or region he asked?GDC,  MC Cham added that the “UN, AU, ECOWAS are key multinational institutions that fund our government and ensure compliance to the Democratic principles”.These transnational Actors in the  “global village” set the agendas, influence policies , ensure implementation and enforcement, monitor and adjudicate. Thus the TRRC, ECOMIG and CRC to name a few. Their primary objectives are “World Order”.

Cham reiterated that Sustainable Development Goals are set and mostly funded by these actors  to ensure peace is in place. As no nation is self-sufficient, the reciprocity of their interventions is to adhere to international best practices of peace and stability under democratic principles.

He finally said we need to be more independent by taking ownership to be in a position for less interference. Until them their funding will give them all rights to interfere and have influence in our National governance.
