Two Term Limit A Necessity

Mr president, if the National Assembly can amend the constitution to accommodate your pet project ie a Vice President of your choice, then please let the National Assembly again amend the constitution to accommodate the pet project of the majority of Gambians ie the introduction of two term presidential limits.

Ministers in New Gambia

There was no mention of honoring the three years transitional period agreed to prior to the election and there was no mention of two term presidential limits in your speech to the National Assembly. I don’t know why.
It will be honorable to stick to the three years transitional period and to introduce two presidential term limits for The Gambia.

Claims and counterclaims of arrests in Dakar are very serious to the national security concerns of The Gambia. We might never know the truth about the stories but one thing is clear from this story and that is The Gambia armed forces should be quickly restructured and let us get the foreign troops out of our country asap.
The level of interest from Senegal to extend their economic reach into The Gambia and the non-urgent drive from ECOMIG/Senegal to restructure the armed forces of The Gambia does not make a pleasant reading. Mr president, accelerate the restructuring of the armed forces of The Gambia, amend the constitution and introduce two term limits to our presidency and get the foreign troops out. We should not be out manoeuvred into relying on Senegalese security and be inundated economically by Senegalese economic interests. Where does The Gambia and Gambians fit into all these manoeuvres?
Bilateral trade deals and security cooperations are meant to be mutually beneficial to both parties, but what we are currently witnessing in The Gambia now is a Senegalese takeover of our country. Our security and our economy should be in the hands of Gambians. At the current rate of the drip Senegalese “invasion”, Gambians might wake up tomorrow and find out that our country is strategically under Senegalese control. I don’t remember signing up to anything like that nor any Gambian being asked about their views.
