He said this on Friday 17th January 2020, while receiving the party’s certificate of registration form the Independent Electoral Commission.

He explained that the formation of APP, came as result of a normal discussion session held in Sinchu Village, during which residents lamented their perineal problems such as increasing poverty, inadequate health care services, deplorable environmental conditions and poor infrastructure.

He said: “A decision was reached to form an organized group called a Task Force for Better Gambia, which gradually became an NGO and finally becoming the All Peoples’ Party, being accorded Certificate of Registration today”.

Touray added “Our aim is to revamp the national economy, with emphasis on the key tenets of development, which includes education, health, agriculture, tourism and particularly youth employment. We shall also give national security an important consideration”.
