“Am overwhelmed and am happy, we believe we have fulfilled the requirements and we are not scared. We want to bring sanity into the politics of the Gambia. Agriculture, health, education and security are in the hands of foreigners and our nation’s sovereignty is at stake,” General Lamin Bojang said.

He further noted that the ANRD wishes to change the dynamics and the status quo.

“We lack leadership in the Gambia. We want to replace the poor leadership with a leadership that is responsible and creative,” he said.

He further revealed that the country’s health institutions have collapsed, promising to introduce medical insurance which will seek to help Gambians access good health facilities.

“We are going to get money through agriculture, also all countries have development partners. We shall fight poverty and corruption,” he said.
