Police have confirmed that the political party of exiled former President Yahya Jammeh was never issued a permit to celebrate July 22nd, the day which ushered in the then government

PRO Foday Conta told The Fatu Radio during the Today Show with Fatu that the Gambia Police Force has never issued any permit to the Alliance for Patriotic, Re-orientation and construction (APRC) to celebrate the day.

Meanwhile, on social media, militants of the party and supporters of former President Jammeh are insisting that they will observe the day in The Gambia.
