There is a power struggle storm at the National Reconciliation Party (NRP). A proposal made by the NRP leader Hamat Bah to handover the party to the confused and rookie President Adama Barrow, is causing an upheaval among the rank and file of the party. Bah had no intention of leading the party. He wants Adama Barrow to head the NRP. The NRP has been divided into two camps: There is this camp led by the Minority Leader Samba Jallow and five other NRP MPS, who are seemingly in support of Bah’s proposal to handover the party to Barrow. But the other camp led by the party’s Deputy Leader Musa L. Sonko, are opposed to Bah’s proposal to allow Barrow to lead their party. The NRP is in complete mess as we file this report. Hamat Bah has created a division within the NRP.
Below is a dispatch we received from credible sources.
Hello Pa, there is a pandemonium between Hamat Bah and his 5 MPS led by Minority Leader Hon Samba Jallow and NRP Deputy Party Leader Musa L. Sonko. Samba Jallow’s group are supporting Hamat to let Adama Barrow take over the NRP. Musa and few of the NRP Executive Members are opposed to accepting Hamat Bah’s proposal.
Hamat had invited his 5 MPS to a meeting with Barrow, where he allegedly told his MPs that he no longer can lead the Party. Minority leader Samba Jallow allegedly told Barrow that he should help them reorganize and take back their supporters from GDC, but Barrow allegedly told him (he) Barrow planned to take over NRP, as a party. Minority leader Samba Jallow with his MPs planned to travel to the provinces tomorrow to consult with the NRP members about letting Barrow take over the party.
Musa Sonko with his colleague NRP members are opposed to the deal. They do not want Adama Barrow to takeover the NRP. Sonko and his group are likely going to organize a press conference to expose Hamat Bah’s dishonest and mischievous plans to handover the party to Adama Barrow.
