A US-based Gambian journalist has argued that it’s only by the grace of God that President Adama Barrow is president of The Gambia.
In an opinion piece made available to The Fatu Network, Sainey Darboe who is Gunjur Online’s editor-in-chief said: “I can understand Ousainou Darboe’s withering desolation with the accompanying sense of precariousness as he finds himself subject of ridicule by a poorly educated and low IQ president surrounded by opportunists who clearly don’t know any better.
“It’s only by the grace of God Barrow burst on the political scene at a time when anyone else would have inflicted an electoral defeat on Jammeh due to the cascading effects of two decades of bad governance, disastrous foreign policy choices and economic mismanagement that left the majority of Gambians in crushing poverty.
“Instead of setting about the task of getting the country back on track, the clueless president is deeply immersed in party politics and embracing, with warmth, despicable pieces of human scum from the Jammeh era out of pure political expediency.”
