The deputy party leader of the Gambia Democratic Congress, Yusupha Jaiteh, has resigned together with seven other members, Kerr Fatou has learned.
The eight members have written a letter to the GDC addressing it to its leadership and thanking them for their support when they were working together.
“Dear Sir, some members of the GDC wish to convey to you that we have resigned from our various positions that was assigned to us in the GDC and also resigned as members of the party with immediate effect,” the group said in a letter.
“We wish you all the success in the party and thank you for the support we have received from all of you during our tenure in our various positions.”
Others are Adama Manjang, National Campaign Manager; Lamin Demba, assistant logistics manager and chairman Kombo South; Seedy Gassama, regional chairman Kanifing Municipality; Borry Manneh, logistics committee member; Buba Jarju, youth mobiliser, Kombo South; Anthony Tabal, member for environmental matters and Amie Njie Colley, former parliamentary candidate for Tallinding constituency.
But the group did not explain their reason for leaving the party.
However, an insider in the party told Kerr Fatou that they “are dissatisfied with its leadership” of GDC.
Since the end of last year, the GDC has had similar issues resulting in the abandoning of the party by some of its members.
Papa Njie Girigara and one-time member Musa Batchilly were both either expelled or ditch the party.
