I don’t know how many times do I have to say that the UDP is the natural political party of The Gambia.
The UDP is the political party of most average Gambians.
The UDP should never hesitate to go to the polls any day of the week in The Gambia.
The national interest The Gambia and the good fortunes of The Gambia are inter connected with the Sublime Force that is behind the sail of the UDP. That’s why Jammeh was not able to kill the UDP.
The leadership of the UDP should not play to the party politics of democracy in the short term and thereby inadvertently compromise the security and wellbeing of the silent majority (the sublime force behind UDP) in the long term.
Democracy is all about numbers and success in politics is about making the right call at the right time.
The current leadership of the UDP and the cyber warriors/activists of the party should embolden and protect the long term interest of the Sublime Natural Force that is behind the party by being credible and trustworthy when in power.
To fail to honor the coalition MOU is not in the long term interest of the “Force” that is behind UDP. It might be in the interest of the current leadership of the party, but to fail to honor the coalition MOU will only have a negative political impact on the Force behind the UDP.
It’s has been a very long 22yrs of unmitigated nightmare in The Gambia.
The terrible lessons of the past two decades should be learnt with an open mind taking into account the long term interest of the Force.
The coming into power of president Jawara and the throwing out of power of yahya Jammeh has one common political significance : the repositioning of the country back to its natural position thanks to the Sublime Force.
Let’s secure and protect the future of our nation and The Sublime Force for the foreseeable future by honoring the coalition MOU and open the doors to a brighter future for every Gambian.
The last thing you want to see is to split that Force into two opposing camps.
Hope common sense and the obvious will prevail at the end.
