Leaders of APRC have continued to react to former President Yahya Jammeh’s decision to sack the entire executive of the party.
Jammeh on Friday said he was dismissing the leaders because they were traitors who entered into an alliance with NPP without his approval.
Fatoumatta Jahumpa Ceesay who loves Jammeh so much reacted that Fabakary Tombong Jatta is the one empowered by the APRC constitution to take certain action.
She said: “I have seen people crying and fainting because they are sad. But to me those cries are cries of joy because we were crying a load on our head and God has offloaded it for us. Because if you love your father and you are in responsible for his feeding if he says he doesn’t want to be no longer fed you will be happy.
“Let’s know that there is only one APRC and I base it on APRC having a constitution. So let no one quarrel or fight. It was us who sat at an ordinary congress in Yundum [to work on the] APRC constitution. Lamin Kaba Bajo is here. I still have the note. Anything I had ever done with APRC and our former president I have never thrown it.
“The issue of secretary general and party leader was seconded by the late Cham Joof. It said the party leader and the chairman of the party is the only person who has the power to either appoint, dismiss or say anything about the constitution without going to congress.
“All of us know what the IEC told us when we wanted to honour him in 2018. So the Right Honourable Fabakary Tombong Jatta is the party leader leader and he is the chairman and he is the only person who can do something. So I want to support what he said that we are the APRC, it’s us who are at the IEC, we are the ones at the Attorney General’s [Chambers] with the red seal.
“So those eleven people you are hearing are not part of APRC. So listen and follow Fabakary Tombong Jatta. So we are with you (Fabakary) all the way and our alliance with [NPP] will continue. So sir (Fabakary), we are behing you through thick and thin.”
