//APRC expels ex-executive member Bou Jarju

Bo Jarju, a native of Brikama, has defected to the APRC few days to the 2016 presidential election that the former ruling party has lost to a coalition candidate Adama Barrow.

The Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction Party has expelled a former executive member Momodou Bou Jarju, the party’s national mobiliser Yankuba Colley confirmed to Kerr Fatou.

The party has made the decision on Tuesday which was made it public at night.

“The Chairman and Party Leader of the APRC Hon. Fabakary Tombong Jatta acting under executive powers vested on him by the party constitution, and in consultation with the National Executive Committee, and the founder of the party, wishes to inform the general public that with effect from Tuesday 3rd July 2018, Mr. Momodou Bou Jarju* has been expelled from the APRC Party,” the party said in a statement.

“The expulsion is necessitated to redress his action and behaviour pose threat of jeopardizing the harmony and unity of the party. By this action, Mr. Momodou Bou Jarju may not in anyway use the name of APRC or act in anyway representing APRC.”

The APRC leadership was recently absorbed in crisis after its former leader Yahya Jammeh reportedly dissolved the party’s executive appointing new people.

Jammeh later took a U-turn on his decision re-appointing Tombong Jatta and his executive.

After Tombong was briefly fired, the leadership of the party was in the hands of former general Momodou Bah and Jarju was the spokesperson.

Tombong and his executive have not been in good terms with Jarju since then. Former mayor Colley told Kerr Fatou that Jarju is “power-hungry”.

Bo Jarju, a native of Brikama, has defected to the APRC few days to the 2016 presidential election that the former ruling party has lost to a coalition candidate Adama Barrow.

His defection was announced at a meeting in Brikama where he was shown on camera hugging ex-president Yahya Jammeh.

Jarju has contested for the leadership of the UDP and lost to Adama Barrow by few votes.
