Lamin Tamba you would have to make a public pronouncement to either debunk, clarify or offer a rebuttal to the public statement of Hon. Mama Kandeh at the election house today. Pa Modou Mbowe I will expect a similar clarification from you as those utterances from Hon. Kandeh has left me confused as to the rationale of the ” No Alliance movement”.
Both Hon. Kandeh and Presidnet Barrow have now made similar public pronouncements that there has been no promise of amnesty for former President Jammeh, but Hon. Kandeh went further to state that the “No Alliance Movement” is not legally registered nor is he into any sort of alliance with them but that he merely accepts and welcomes their support recognizing their rights to choose and support whomever they will.
Now, it does not take rocket science to decipher the substantive reasoning of such a public pronouncement on a very special occasion as his nomination day and in the sacredness of the hollow Chambers of the Election House. To my mind, President Barrow at least recognized that he was indeed entering into an alliance with the APRC thus giving them some sort of political recognition and public regard.
Now, I have tried to understand the legality behind Hon. Kandeh accepting that he has entered into an alliance with the ” No Allance Movement” in that he could be cited by the IEC for contempt as the NAM is not legally recognized by the IEC and the IEC only recognizes the NEC of the APRC. What I do not understand however, is the public stance on amnesty for former President Jammeh as this is the basis of the formation of NAM and one of their most solid reasoning for not supporting President Barrow.
How is X canceling Y in this simultaneous equation baffles me.
It is common knowledge that there is a lot of political arithmetical-summation taking place at the moment but If NAM is not strategic and level headed, they will face a cogent deficiency of astronomical proportions that will catapult them to political extinction.
