(Daily News) - Ousainou Darboe, leader of main opposition-UDP has described Gambian president Yahya Jammeh as a national problem and that he is the solution.
Darboe was addressing a mass political rally at Serrekunda as the campaigns for the Nov.24 presidential elections intensifies.
He said: “Jammeh is The Gambia’s problem and UDP is the solution. Gambians are at lost and baffled by 17 years of misrule.
“We are treated like children, people are afraid to speak out all because of fear and intimidation.

“I call for action against the APRC regime; and ending his regime is in the hands of the electorate. We are sick and tired of Jammeh’s regime.”
The UDP leader assured that his party will surely end president Jammeh’s 17 year misrule come 24th Nov.
“Enough is enough,” he chanted his campaign slogan to his cheerful supporters.
“I know, you know; and we all know it is time for change. “We have seen mighty leaders and tyrants whose governments have fallen and citizens reclaimed their rights and dignity. This time around Gambians will do the same thing.
Darboe who did not hide his impression about large turn out in the Serekunda meeting said, the turn out demonstrates that UDP will uproot the Jammeh regime.
“Africa has seen opposition wining credible elections. Gambians can do same thing as it happened in countries like Cape verde, Zambia, Senegal, Ghana, Mauritius, Niger, among others.
Darboe who has 38 years experience as a defense attorney said the era of Jammeh’s misrule will end come Nov 24th and a new unity and democratic government will emerge.
