Okay….? President Adama Barrow ‘fankamaal la Mansa’ has finally given us the long-awaited answer on the issue of 3/5 term. Also his intention to remain in power when he told group of people in the north bank that, “In four years, his government would deliver 140 borehole across the country” ?
If Barrow the President of the rich and big businessmen (Fankamaal la Mansa)mentioned in his speech four years, then he’s telling us that he Barrow, will be serving full five-year term instead of the 3yrs agreed in the MOU. Basically, what Barrow is telling Gambians is that he is looking to be President for the next 13yrs at most.
Hmmmmm….? President Barrow has now mastered the Gambia politician’s syllogism. He is playing the exact game of politics his predecessors and former politicians played on poor farmers. Mr. President, Gambian poor farmers had enough of empty rhetorics and promises. They need to see actions! In fact, is about time Gambians scrap the whole idea of meet the farmers tour.
There’s virtually ZERO effect to the poor farmers except is a waste of taxpayers money on expenses and ridiculous transport allowances. It also put on hold so many government transactions.
The money spend in a year on farmers tour can be distributed among farmers all over the country as a support to better prepared themselves on food and medicines during the farming period. It can also help them purchase fertilizers for their crops.
Lastly, Mr President Barrow (fankamaal la Mansa) please tell the Gambian people that the 1.5 billion is only a pledge. !!!
People are aware if the truth, no one is sleeping now Sir.
