Kitabu Fatty the leader of the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), and a Presidential aspirant for the 2021 elections, has given his full endorsement to Mr Essa Mbye Faal, independent Candidate for the upcoming polls.
A statement by the comedian-politician on Monday said: “Prior to taking this decision Mr. Fatty had been approached by several Political Parties to join their campaign. However after a period of thorough reflection and evaluation, both Mr. Fatty and the National Executive of the PDP unanimously agreed that Mr. Essa Mbye Faal is the best person to lead our country at this time of great social and political change.
“His wealth of experience, indepth knowledge of the law, his personal accomplishments and calm temperament, makes him unique among the competing candidates to steer the affairs of the country.
“The PDP believes that with Mr Faal as President, The Gambia will change for the better. For this reason the PDP and Mr. Fatty decided to shelve their plans for the coming elections and rally behind Mr. Essa Mbye Faal for President 2021. Mr Faal takes this opportunity to thank Mr Fatty and his followers for endorsing his bid for the Presidency and urged other Parties to join with him and to work towards removing President Barrow’s ineffectual government come 4th December.”
