NRP leader Hamat Bah has said UDP leader Ousainou Darboe’s political career will come to end when he gets defeated comprehensively by President Adama Barrow in December.
“What I want is that if we are defeating him, we do it cleanly,” Mr Bah told the president supporters at the Buffer Zone on Thursday evening.
Hamat also said: “If you’re wrestling with a stubborn wrestler, you knock him down in the ashes so there would be no dispute. But if Adama Barrow knocks him down this time, it would mark the end of his political career.
“Changing your name would not make you win an election. Holding a hand-fan that has a charm would not make you win an election. Let me tell you that. What makes you win an election is to do things in peace and you have God give you the people and the people give themselves to you.”
President Adama Barrow filed in his nomination papers with the IEC on Thursday accompanied by thousands of supporters.
The president is seeking re-election next month and his political father UDP leader Ousainou Darboe will be his fiercest challenger.
