Addressing Simon Sabally’s concerns Halifa Sallah concluded with the claim that few Gambians had sat down to think of the New Gambia that would include all and exclude none.
Most Gambians were satisfied in getting closer to the corridors of power so that they could build the type of Gambia that would be under the direction and control of the force they support. He argued that the current state of the nation is a byproduct of the battle between these forces that had been putting their groups’ interests before the national interest.
Hence if we are to move forward, we must go back to the drawing board and come up with new strategies and tactics that will be able to draw people away from the interest of sectarian groups and work together to build the instruments, institutions and values that will give The Gambia the new start it deserves.
We hope that Mr Sabally will concur.
