President Adama Barrow has backtracked from his threats of banning opposition meetings if re-elected into office. Government Spokesman Ebrima G Sankareh, in a statement issued today said President Barrow has no intentions of whatsoever to either curtail the freedoms of citizens nor interfere, control or ban political activities either during or after the upcoming Presidential elections slated for December 4th.

“Fundamentally, while a strong believer in human rights as universal values, President Barrow sees as worrisome, the implication of audios and videos in social media subjecting innocent citizens to daily insults, abuse, innuendoes and ridicule and urges citizens to desist from such activities,” Spokesman Sankareh stated.

“Concerned about this worrisome trajectory that has plagued Gambian society in the new dispensation, Mr. Barrow tried to address it in a speech at State House while meeting a cross section of the Serer Community. That statement has in itself, been grossly exaggerated, mischaracterized and misinterpreted to score cheap political points,” Sankareh added.

Barrow’s backtracking followed criticisms from Gambia’s pro-democracy activists, accusing him being dictatorial. Barrow has also been accused of betraying the hopes and aspirations of the people who voted him into office.

Sankareh’s statement has been viewed as another save face from the government to cover up Barrow’s latest mess.
