I Am Not UDP, But I Respect UDP Says Bachilly

 Musa Ousainou Yali Bachilly, leader of the opposition Gambia Action Party (GAP) said he endorses Talib Ahmed Bensouda for re-election as Kanifing Municipal Council (KMC) mayor because of his manifesto.

 “I am not UDP, but I respect UDP. The political maturity people have in the Gambia is different. I endorse Bensouda based on his manifesto. We should see Gambia before anything because if you love the country, you must be tolerant, confident and patient,” he said.

Mr. Bachilly was speaking at the manifesto launch of Bensouda on Saturday 6th May 2023.

Talib Bensouda is the incumbent mayor of KMC who is seeking a second term mandate under the main opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) ticket.

Speaking on bribing electorates for votes, Bachilly told residents of Kanifing Municipality to collect any money given to them by the ruling party but instead vote for Mr. Bensouda, adding that Bensouda has not given anyone money to attend his nomination, instead  people used their own money to attend the nomination because they love him.

“The government should use that money and invest in the health sector because our hospitals are without medicines. It doesn’t make sense. They are going round giving people money,” said Bachilly..

He continued that there will be no problem if the ruling National People’s Party (NPP) and the main opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) put the interest of the country first.

“It is true that the central government is NPP and KMC’s current mayor is UDP, but if UDP and NPP puts Gambia first there will be no problem,” further stated.

Emphasizing on Bensouda’s point five of the manifesto, which covers transportation, Bachilly noted that if the council brings buses and the central government brings buses without reducing the fares and addressing the problems of the people, they are more into making money.

He finally raised concerns about people that have to struggle everyday to travel from Brikama to Banjul which he believe isn’t done and added that this has been the problem the country is facing after Fifty-eight years (58) of independence .
