Lamin Bojang, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Progressive Coalition The Gambia reiterated that the Coalition platform is not associated with any political party nor endorsed by any political party in the country.

He said the platform was created primarily for Gambians who would care about the country’s need to hold the central government accountable as they are elected to effectively represent the electorates.

In a statement made available to The Voice newspaper, he said one of the saddest things about this country is that when groups form people accuse them of being associated with a particular political party.

He noted that Gambian citizens residing both inside and outside The Gambia, who care about the country and are concerned about the affairs of state are the ones who have come together to hold the government responsible.

“What Gambians are going through under this regime comes as no surprise to anyone, so it should be a duty for everyone in the country to make sure they end it. The things we condemn under the former regime are the same things happening again and Gambians sit back like nothing happened. If someone acts people say they are backed by a political party,” Bonjang pointed out.

“We know that rumors are already circulating, but let’s all be concerned about this country and stop making negative comments every time people come out to hold the government to account,” he continued. However, he advised people to refrain from such behaviors and stop classifying any group under a political party.

“We all need to put The Gambia first and be honest with each other. So, in past elections, everyone voted for a particular political party which is the right of every citizen. So our political thoughts may not be the same, but one of the policies of this platform is to set aside all political affiliations. If anyone wants to participate, they should know that this is a struggle that will continue and this platform is here to stay,” he said.
