After a fruitful debate between Dr. Ismaila Ceesay of Citizen Alliance (CA) and that of Hon Halifa Sallah of PDOIS, Ceesay said Coalition 2016 is a failure. He was responding to questions after his fifteen minutes intervention. Dr. Ceesay said among many reasons the selective manner of the implementation of the Janneh Commission and other acts are clear cut reasons for the failure of Coalition 2016.
The CA leader was asked if with the removal of a dictatorship, setting up of the many Commission such as the Janneh Commission, the Truth Commission, the National Human Rights Commission, and the freedom of the Press will all of these not connotes that these are all attributed to the success of the 2016 Coalition?
Ceesay said he is saying no to some extend because the Truth Commission is yet to end and if they end their mandate and their recommendations are not fully implemented then he will be right to say the Coalition has failed.
It is the belief if the CA leader that, we still have physical indiscipline in the country. Dr. Ceesay pointed out that it was one of the recommendations of the Janneh Commission to punched out 28 people from the civil service for have participated in certain unacceptable practices but Ceesay said some of them are yet to be laid off as recommended . The selective form of implementation of justice goes to tell that the Janneh Commission’s recommendations are not fully implemented and therefore not respected.
Citizen Alliance’s leaders said , we have all recently saw , when the so called COVID organics came to the country from Guinea Bissau , a government official went to the Central bank and withdraw 2.1million dalasi whiles the statuary limit is saying only a D100,000.00. What is that, is it not physical indiscipline?
Dr. Ismaila said as for the press freedom it was the media who fought for it and not the coalition; and the Coalition cannot take credit for that.
No Physical discipline if Central Bank can Pay 2.1 M over Counter
