Barrrow vows to replicate win in 2021, warns UDP of more losses
Gambian President Adama Barrow has fired warning shots to UDP as he celebrated his party’s win in Kerr Jarga and Niamina West by-elections.
Addressing his supporters in the capital yesterday, Barrow warned more losses await UDP in the 2021 election cycle, noting he would use the same successful formula thats worked well for him.
“If you marry a wife you want to have a family. The first off spring of NPP are twins - Adama and Awa. This is nothing. What they have seen here is the pad and the load is not even here yet. We have a team of influential people in Niamina who campaigned for NPP and secured a victory we had never before seen.
The campaign we did in Niamina West and Kerr Jarga if we do that in 2021 we will be the winners. What they have seen is just the head pad and not the load. They haven’t seen nothing yet. Hamat Bah spent the whole time of the campaign in Niamina. I wanted to go there myself, but he assured me his affords are enough”.
Barrow traces his political origins to the United Democratic Party whose support propelled him to the presidency as part of a coalition in 2016. He has since broken away from the party amid acrimony with his former vice president and political god father Ousainou Darboe, whom he sensationally fired amid plans to contest under National People’s Party ticket which he formed a few months ago.
