(JollofNews) – The incoming regime of President-elect Adama Barrow is reaching out to Gambians in the Diaspora to return home and actively participate in building the New Gambia.
The new administration which is due to take over from President Yahya Jammeh, who has been in power for 22 years on 19th January 2017, said under their leadership, there will be sufficient place and abundant opportunities for all Gambians who are ready to work hard.
“We all have a stake in the enthronement of a developed, stable and peaceful Gambia,” said Mai Ahmad Fatty a senior member of the administration.
“We believe that in voting for change, Gambians voted for their future, not their past. Our focus is to build solid foundation for viable future for all Gambians, regardless of subjective inclinations.
The former human rights lawyer survived numerous assassination plots by the agents of the Jammeh regime added: “Together, we shall build a great nation, a vibrant inclusive democracy, innovate opportunities for all those who are willing to work hard for it, and better quality of lives for all.
“All Gambians in all walks of life, are encouraged to support this goal. Of our citizens in the Diaspora who are in the position and are willing to do so, are encouraged to return home, to actively participate in building the New Gambia. There is sufficient place and abundant opportunities for all our citizens who are ready to work hard.”
Meanwhile, French president Francois Hollande Tuesday called on President Yahya Jammeh to accept defeat in elections and stand aside.
Mr Hollande said the results of the December 1 polls were “indisputable” and Jammeh’s challenger Adama Barrow “must be installed as soon as possible”.
“The matter is non-negotiable,” he said after a meeting in Paris with visiting Senegalese President Macky Sall.
