Senior citizen and Secretary General of Gambia Workers’ Confederation (GWC), Pa Momodou K.B. Faal has called on the leader of United Democratic Party (UDP), Lawyer Ousainou Daboe to concede defeat and work with the President Barrow led government to foster peace, cohesion and development in The Gambia.
The Gambia Wokers’ Confederation is a trade union centre in The Gambia and an affiliate to the International Trade Union Confederation.
In an exclusive interview with The Fatu Network, Pa Faal said the interest of Gambia should override personal interest, stressing that Gambia is and should always be the bigger picture.
The 78-year-old trade unionist, on behalf of trade unions in the country, congratulated president-elect Adama Barrow on his election victory as President of the Republic of The Gambia.
The septuagenarian however called on President Barrow to appoint and work with committed and patriotic professionals to enhance efficiency and sustainable growth in diverse sectors.
It could be recalled that all local and international observers who monitored the 4th December presidential election unanimously agreed that the said election was free, fair, transparent and credible. Also, most of the presidential candidates who contested with President Barrow have accepted the outcome. Top officials of the main opposition UDP have also been extending congratulatory gestures to president-elect Adama Barrow.
In all of this, the UDP presidential candidate and former vice president of The Gambia, Mr. Ousainou Darboe still maintains his position that the election was rigged against him but that his party is investigating the alleged electoral anomalies.
