Musa Batchilly, Secretary General of opposition Gambia Action Party (GAP) has said President Adama Barrow’s aides are only there to ‘reform’ their pockets.
Barrow government has promised Gambian with a massive institutional reforms during the five years transition period, but many argue that the government has failed to embark on major reforms as promised because of political gains.
“I respect Mr President Barrow but his surrounders are surround by corporate greed who ain’t care about Gambia, just their own pocket [sic]. They call them reformers. What are you reforming? Your pocket. For the betterment of your kids. They drive million dalasis cars,” Mr Batchilly told journalists.
The GAP leader joins the likes of Mai Fatty in savaging President Barrow’s advisers. The latter had asked the president to sack all his advisers.
According to him, ex- president Yahya Jammeh’s government is ‘far better’ than the Barrow government, calling on Gambians to come together and kick out President Barrow.
“It’s high time for you to rise up in a positive way to remove these people by what? Next election,” he said.
