His Excellency President Adama barrow while addressing thousands at a political rally held in Brikama, on the 15th of June 2019, made a declaration that he will stay in office till 2021.
President Barrow under the coalition ticket during the 2016 presidential elections agreed for three years, after which he would step down; then the Gambia will go to the polls to elect another leader as mandated by the constitution of the Gambia. Throughout the campaign, Mr. Barrow reassured Gambians that he would rule for only three years as agreed by members of the coalition, but he has changed his position to five years after a long and convoluted silence over the matter.
“What I am thinking both day and night is how to work for Gambians. Now it is left to you, whether is president barrow that you will put there in 2021, that’s left to you Gambians ,if you want to put someone there also is left to you Gambians.” Mr. Barrow said.
