President Adama Barrow has said he doesn’t have anything against former President Yahya Jammeh which is why he doesn’t get angry over the former dictator’s statements.
“All these things that he is doing… I have nothing against Yahya Jammeh. This is why I don’t get angry over whatever he says. But The Gambia is our country and we have to promote peace,” President Barrow told his Faji Kunda rally over the weekend.
Former President Jammeh who is living in exile in Equatorial Guinea has been engaged in attempts to turn Gambians against President Barrow. He supports opposition Mamma Kandeh and usually calls at Mr Kandeh’s rallies to tell Gambians not to vote for President Barrow but Kandeh.
In one of the meetings, he called President Barrow a donkey and Saitan person – and has also accused his successor of destroying his 22 years work as president.
Jammeh has remained a bitter man following his electoral defeat in the hands of President Barrow in the 2016 presidential election. He refused to hand over power which led to ECOWAS sending troops to The Gambia and Jammeh later fleeing to Equatorial Guinea.
