The APRC Deputy Spokesman, Dodou Jah, has vowed that President Adama Barrow would be held responsible for the wrongdoings of Ba Tambadou, the former Justice Minister for selling the properties of the exile former Gambian President Yahya Jammeh.
“There is nothing personal or to say that Ba Tambadou is solely responsible for the mismanagement and the inappropriate selling of former President Jammeh’s properties particularly his herd cattle. Barrow is the president of this country so whatever happened he is in charge,” the APRC Deputy Spokesman stated.
Dodou Jah has argued that the former President Yahya Jammeh was held responsible for everything that happened under his watched likewise the regime of Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara.
“So President Barrow cannot be an exception, he employed Ba Tambadou and whatsoever Ba Tambadou did good or bad Barrow should be fully responsible,” he asserted.
According to the APRC Deputy Spokesman, the former Justice Minister’s resignation to take up an international job was a fundamental right. He added that the APRC through its interim leader, Fabakary Tombong Jatta was the first person to demand for Tambadou’s resignation.
The APRC Deputy Spokesman said the party’s interim leader was the first to call on Ba Tambadou to resign for misleading Gambians. He said the statement was made after the ruling of the Court of Appeal which states that the recommendations of the ‘Janneh Commission’ that led to the issuing of Government white paper (s) cannot make enforceable judicial order that are capable of execution.
“For us (APRC) we believe it is time for Gambians to way in, yesterday many made noise regarding how this country should be govern. Today Gambians should not be silence over issues that are not right. We (APRC) will create that wake up call to remind people with regards to some of these things that are happening that the government is not following the due process of the law. These are issues that we should not just ignore like that. I believe the collective responsibility is to hold our leaders accountable,” he concludes.
