Mr Tambadou was dismissive when a national assembly member raised the issue up with him on Wednesday at the national assembly in Banjul.

He said: “Honourable member, I believe that the National Assembly and the members who sit in this August Assembly are too dignified to entertain rumours.

“I believe that when we seek accountability from us, it is based on facts. I have no idea where that information came from. I know certainly that the process which my ministry is responsible for did not sell any Range Rover for D100,000.

“I don’t know whether the auction that the commission carried out sold any such vehicle or the circumstances or the reasons why this was sold. I cannot confirm or deny that. But it will be difficult for me to believe that a Range Rover would be sold for a D100,000. I don’t know.”
