The United Democratic Party has issued a press statement on Friday dispelling rumours that it is involved in organizing protest as the 3-year proposed term for President Adama Barrow nears its end.
The Gambian leader and his partners have campaign on a 3-year term for presidency. Since they came into power, Barow changed his position and declared intention to finish the term.
Since then, there was a loose movement calling itself “3 years jotna”, vowing to take to the street to demand Barrow’s resignation.
Critics of the UDP said the party is behind this, a charge the party categorically deny.
“The secretary general and party leader of the United Democratic Party hereby informs the general public that the UDP is not organising any political event or gathering in any part of the Gambia contrary to the rumours and allegations that the United Democratic Party is organising or participating in the organising a protest and or manifestations in any part of the Gambia. The UDP is a responsible and mature political party and not a protest movement whenever political events are organised the party ensures that all the necessary permits are obtained in good time,” said the party in a statement.
