FJC says 2016 elections ‘manipulated’ to oust Jammeh

Former speaker of National Assembly and APRC mobilizer, Fatoumatta Jahumpa Ceesay, has called the fairness of 2016 elections that catapulted Barrow to the presidency into question.


Speaking to Star FM radio, the APRC top hack recounted Jammeh’s accomplishments, while declaring that his departure from power was due to manipulation of the 2016 elections.

Former Gambian President Jammeh is in exile following his ouster in 2016

Despite his well reported deficits in governance and notoriety, FJC said of the erstwhile president:

“Even Jammeh knows he had made mistakes, some of which are very close to him both in his administration and his family. Nobody is perfect. But he has equally done some very good things that are benefitting people today.

I remember him during Jawara’s days stopping ministers from entering Cabinet meetings or state functions because they came late. Jammeh has always been a no-nonsense man.


Even if you don’t like him, you cannot take that away from him and to me, Jammeh is a very good person and all what people are saying about him today were not known to me. I never heard he kill somebody or he has done anything to anybody. Things that nobody can wipe out of our history. Jammeh had even bigger plans for this country and had it been the 2016 election were not manipulated, he would have taken this country to another level”.
