Former Minister of Agriculture Lamin Dibba on Saturday said he was in N’Djamena, Chad when he was sacked by President Adama Barrow.

Speaking to a crowd of UDP supporters at a rally held in Bundung on Saturday, Dibba sarcastically said he happens to be among those who exited the bus when he had in fact never boarded it.

He said: “I am also one of those people who have been removed from the bus. Ousainu said he was removed but the time the bus was departing, I didn’t board because I was in N’Djamena, Chad. The time people were being removed, I was not here, I was in Chad. So I didn’t enter the bus.”

According to Dibba, members of the United Democratic Party who were in cabinet were working for the country not UDP.

“It was about the country not UDP. UDP was formed because of the country. So when we entered the government, we were working for the country. That’s our belief,” he said.
