APRC leader Fabakary Tombong Jatta has reacted to former President Yahya Jammeh’s fiat that saw the former dictator sack him and his top aides as leaders of APRC.
Jammeh shocked Gambia on Friday when he addressed APRC supporters where he rubbished statements by Jatta he agreed to APRC entering into an alliance with NPP. Jammeh went ahead to dismissed Jatta and his APRC executive members and named new leaders.
Speaking in Bwiam, Mr Jatta said: “APRC is not owned by anyone, it’s Gambia that owns it. Us sitting here will leave one day and you too will take over. No one should be sad or angry. Ignore and let it not make anyone say anything that is said out of anger.
“What we know since yesterday is calmness, patience and discipline. They also said there is a new committee. That’s not an APRC committee.
“I think his people who left us to join GANU are those who are with GANU. They would either be independent or be GANU but APRC… I don’t know about the future but it’s us who are in charge of the party today.”
