President Barrow’s National Peoples Party NPP’s West Coast Regional Chairman, Lamin Jatta, has told The MAMOS Media that he would support the UDP expelled Chairman Sheriffo Sonko against any candidate including his own party.
Jatta has made these remarks today, during an interviewed with this medium at the NPP Regional Bureau in Brikama.
As the seat of Chairmanship at Brikama Area Council (BAC) takes the heat, after the United Democratic Party UDP expelled the current sitting Chairman, the NPP Regional Chairman said he would back Sonko should they go to the polls for a possible by-election.
“I will support Sheriffo Sonko over NPP candidate if he opted to run under Independent ticket should we head to the polls for by-election. I supported him since day one and will always continue to give him my support,” Lamin Jatta told The MAMOS Media.
The NPP Regional Chairman said his party is not afraid of the so-called mighty UDP party as they are structurally more organised than them.
“We are not afraid to face UDP at the election as we know how to defeat them,” he remarked.
Jatta said all the UDP Chairpersons from village to regional levels are answerable to the NPP.
