Majority leader Kebba K Barrow has lashed out at President Adama Barrow over the firing of a nominated national assembly member Ya Kumba Jaiteh.
President Barrow on Monday terminated Ms Jaiteh who he hand-picked two years ago to be a member of the national assembly.
Reacting to the president’s move on Monday, Kebba Barrow the national assembly member for Kombo South who is also the majority leader told journalists in Banjul it is their integrity that is at stake.
“This is a national issue, our integrity is at stake. This is The Gambia that we have fought for until 2016 and nobody can come and change that. We don’t want any self-perpetuation in this country,” he said.
The majority leader said the constitution is the “supreme law of our land and it is very clear on the nomination and the dismissal of national assembly members.”
