Former President Yahya Jammeh has denied authorising the APRC executive to enter a coalition agreement with President Adama Barrow.

Jammeh, who is currently living in exile in Equatorial Guinea, made the shocking revelation on Friday in a telephone address to a breakaway faction of the APRC party.

“APRC will not go into alliance with any party that has destroyed The Gambia within this past four years,” Jammeh said.

He said the APRC executive led by Fabakary Tombong Jatta never had his consent to form alliance with President Barrow. 

Jammeh told his supporters that he is still the “supreme leader” of the APRC party and will act in the party’s interest.

He told the Kanilai crowd that the Tombong-Jatta led executive no longer speak for the party and has now been dissolved.

He announced a new APRC executive led by members of the breakaway group.

They include Abdou Jarju, Bakary Saibo Sanneh, Muhammed Lamin Jammeh, Yahya Bamba, Jerreding Sanyang, Matarr Kujabi, Ebou Sambou, Omar Mamburay, Pa Modou Mbowe, Williams and Habib Secka.
