He stress that his party and other stakeholders will not take such information for granted; and therefore warn that none Gambians will take a big risk if they try to obtain our national documents in a bid to participate in our voter registration or talk less participate in the 2021 Presidential elections.
Hon Ceesay said the 2021 election is one of a do or die elections as said by Mayor Rohey Malick Lowe of Banjul. My party is not taking anything for granted and will make sure the knots are all tighten for free and fair elections.
