Did President Barrow offer an olive branch during the 55thanniversary?



The answer is in the negative. One expected that since he has decided to serve the full term of a president, he should now begin afresh by pardoning prisoners. Those who wish to govern peaceful nations must transform the state into an instrument of protection rather than an instrument of coercion.

Hence all those who love their nation must now begin to tell truth to power in a convincing and sincere manner. This is what Gambia needs as we move towards the 56th anniversary of the attainment of the right to self-determination.
