During his rally at Kalagi, Bondali and Sibanor on Tuesday, President Barrow called on his supporters to rally behind him. However, he dismissed claims made by Lawyer Ousainou Darboe in a WhatsApp audio saying that ‘President Adama Barrow not interested in agriculture’. The president said these claims are misleading.

Barrow emphasized that his government is committed to improving the agricultural sector. “My government have budget $80m rice value chain, $28m on livestock, project $27 boreholes for animals and new $40m from World Bank,” he said. “I want my father to go and find about the agriculture projects we have brought in the country.”

“I will work hard to put the best interest first,” he said. “Only work can develop this country. Let’s work hard and talk less. I will not blame my father (Ousainou Darboe) because he is too old.”

Honorable Bori LSB Colley described the APRC/ NPP alliance as the best interest for the country. He called on the people of Foni to rally behind President Adama Barrow while urging them to desist from supporting the APRC breakaway team. “I want to assure you our firm support,” he said. “In Foni, we don’t know what opposition is.”

Henry Gomez, leader of GPDP, the election is not about President Barrow but Gambia vs Gambia. He also urged the citizens to vote for President Barrow in December.

At these rallies, President Barrow has been described as peaceful, generous and democratic leader. However, residents continue highlighting challenges face by women ranging from lack of milling machines, shortage of water in gardens among many things.

Other speakers at the meetings include Hamat Bah, Tamsir Jasseh Independent presidential candidate, Hon Alhagie Jammeh National Assembly Member for Foni Jarol, Modou Lamin Barrow, Momodou Bah 1 Independent Candidate who all expressed their support to the president.
