The National Executive Committee of the Alliance for Patriotic Re-orientation and Construction (APRC) has disassociates itself from the incendiary comments made by Abdoulie Saine, former lawmaker for Banjul Central, describing it as disturbing and tribal sentiments.
Below reads the party’s press release:
“It has come to the notice of the National Executive Committee of the Alliance for Patriotic Re-orientation and Construction (APRC) that Honourable Abdoulie Saine has said some disturbing and tribal sentiments in an audio that went viral.
The National Executive Committee under the leadership of Alhajie Honourable Fabakary Tombong Jatta vehemently condemned this audio and totally disassociates itself from the message in the audio, and that Honourable Abdoulie Saine on no account spoke on behalf of the APRC as a party, and he is solely responsible for any statements that he uttered in the audio.
In conclusion, the APRC as a party stands for and is with the belief of one Gambia, one nation, one people. We are a discipline party that does not condone tribalism and indiscipline in any form, and call on all party members to conform to the noble values we are always known for.”
