APRC leader Fabakary Tombong has announced the stripping of officials sympathetic to the Jammeh-backed No Alliance Movement of their roles in the party.

Speaking at a press conference in Manjai on Thursday, Mr Jatta said: “What we have agreed and I will make that annoucnement here today is that Honourable Abdou Jarju, our national youth mobiliser has been relieved of his position. Consequently, our youth structure… We have the national youth mobiliser, the first deputy national youth mobiliser and the second deputy national youth mobiliser. Consequently, we have appointed his first deputy national youth mobiliser to act in his position, that Honourable Pa Matarr Ndow. In addition it has been decided that from that Thursday that Honourable Abdou Jarju and Bakary Saibo Sanneh are no longer members of the national executive.

“We are aware former deputy COP (chief of protocol) Muhammed Lamin Jammeh is named in the new committee. To that end, earlier than today about three weeks or a month ago, we were suspicious and we have evidence most of the executive committee meetings that are leaked out were done through him and then we removed him from the executive forum. Since that day we have not had cause for accusing each other of people giving out information. Muhammed Lamin Jammeh is also relieved of his position as a member of the national executive committee.”

On former President Jammeh’s last Friday fiat that saw the former dictator sack them, Mr Jatta could only say he was ‘mis-informed’.

He said: “Despite what might have happened on that Friday, I think he had been misinformed and mis-advised. But I recognise one thing and I said: I said Yahya Jammeh had been our president for 22 years, Yahya Jammeh had been our party leader for 20 years. Just for those two, he deserves our respect. And we appreciate what he has done in this country. He has transformed this country. Like it or not. Agree to it or not. He has impacted positvely on every sector of this country.

“Yes, he is a human being like us. He has his shortfalls and shortcomings. Subsequent steps will only be necessary depending on what comes in next. But as at now, even those in the NAM group, we are not removing them from the party. They are members. If they choose to go to GANU or any political party, we have no qualms. But we are urging them to come back to their green party.”
