Essa Faal on Wednesday declared him and his people have changed Gambian politics – and that the youth have taken charge of their destiny.
“From 10am to now (8pm), thank you. We must also thank the IEC for making this event possible. We had to make changes at the last minute and they accommodated us,” Mr Faal told supporters from the roof of his car after arriving home.
The Turnaround advocate insisted Gambian youth have taken charge of their destiny and will unite in December to effect change.
Mr Faal said: “We have changed Gambians politics. It is no longer a reserve for the adults, it is now the property of the Gambian youth and from henceforth, you decide your future.
“From today onwards, you decide your destiny and come December 4th you will be united in one resolution, that is to change this government.”
Essa Mbye Faal is one of six candidates who will contest next month’s presidential election with President Adama Barrow seeking re-election.
Mr Faal is a lawyer by profession and was the lead prosecutor for the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission.
