The United Democratic Party will like to thank everyone who has in one way or the other played a part in organising and executing the 3rd commemoration of the events of April 14 2016, when galant men and women of the Party took to the streets to demand electoral reforms. This led to the murder of our then organising secretary, Ebrima Solo Sandeng who led the group in the hands of state operatives.
At our last national party congress in 2018, the United Democratic Party unanimously agreed to make the 14th of April an anniversary where all victims would be remembered.
As a nation, this day reminds us of our struggles and how far we have come in our journey. The sacrifices of Solo Sandeng, Solo Kurumah, Ebrima Janko Ceesay, Lang Marong, Femi Peters and all other victims who have given blood and sweat to see our nation free.
We will also want to thank the families of victims, whom we have worked with hand in hand in making this day a reality, as it couldn’t have been done without them.
On behalf of Honourable Ousainou Darboe, Party leader and Secretary General of the United Democratic Party, we thank you all.
National Youth Secretary General.
