The United Democratic Party rally in Tanji this weekend is not only well attended by the Party Leader's address to his party militants was more pointed and defiant than any of his recent speeches, perhaps suggesting that Ousainou Darboe now prepared to take the fight to the Gambian dictator.
The UDP leader accused Jammeh of land grabbing in the Kombos, the Central River Region and around the country. Under his leadership, the opposition leader suggested that appropriate land use policy will be the order of the day. The Gambian dictator was also accused of concealing his wealth using corporate entities as cover to highlight Jammeh's corruption schemes.
Addressing the youth, Darboe assured them of under a UDP government, education will not only be a priority but the quality will be improved that will assure them employment either in the public or private sector.
Jammeh came under more criticism in his abuse of public resources in political campaigns. As example, Mr. Ousainou Darboe cited the fact that over 200 government vehicles will be accompanying Jammeh in his political tour of the country which starts this week the entire cost of which will be borne by the Gambian taxpayers.
The UDP leader made a special plea on behalf of the numerous Imams who have been arrested recently at the instruction of the Gambian dictator to have them released.
Several youth who were former supporters of the ruling APRC were introduced as new members of the UDP. They have decided to join the opposition because of the failed policies and promises of Yaya Jammeh.
