The Government of The Gambia on Friday 8th January 2021, issued a press release to counter reports trending on Social Media, that a night-time curfew for 21 days effective Friday 8th January 2021 was purportedly issued by the Government of The Gambia.

They clarified that such report is false and unfounded. 

The Gambia Government Spokesperson Ebrima G. Sankareh, said the false and unfounded report is a desperate attempt by saboteurs, to diminish the anticipated high capacity crowd at the grand welcoming of President Adama Barrow in Banjul. 

“In fact, following remarkably successful meetings in Bullock village in the Foni Berefet Constituency and Kuloro village in Kombo East District, President Adama Barrow and his tour party are more energized for a spectacular grand welcome ceremony at Banjul’s Arch-22 and nothing had changed in that program,” Sankareh said; that crucially, citizens are warned that the use of Government insignia, symbols, emblems, letterheads and or documents to peddle false information calculated to undermine and or derail its function(s), is utterly criminal and punishable by law.

The release concludes that the Gambia Government urges citizens, members of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps, residents and intending travelers into or outside of The Gambia, to disregard this shameful piece of political propaganda.
