Hamat Bah, leader of the National Reconciliation Party (NRP), has warned critics of President Barrow that if the unjustified attacks on the president do not stop it will “compel them to retaliate.” Bah issue that stern warning at the party’s national congress in Soma on Sunday.

“If we are pushed to the wall, we will have no option but take on the critics head on. Gambians should realise that now is the time to respect each other and to honour and appreciate what we have achieved together and to ensure that we enjoy the change in great peace and stability,” Bah said.

Bah, who serves as the Minister of Tourism in the Barrow government, added “I want to make this clear that President Barrow is enjoying the full support of the international community because he is running a transparent government with honesty and sincerity to the Gambian people and that is why my party is committed to his programmes to the end of the five-year term.

“This country needs a lot of work, for example, stabilising and revitalising the economy, reconciling our differences, adopting a better constitution, enacting good laws, supporting a very free and fair press, as well as developing strategies that will enhance national development and move this country forward. When we do this we will see the benefit of this change we all yearn for; and this requires all of us to be united and speaking with one voice.”

Bah urged all supporters of political parties to keep the peace among political leaders, adding that party supporters should promote understanding and not division among the political leaders.

“The people who were together during the struggle must remain together as a family. It is therefore incumbent on all of us as party leaders to work towards the common good of our peoples. We have five years and two years is already gone and we are left with three years to do the job that needs to be done”, Bah said.
