I dream of Africa that would one day have one currency one President and one government which will preside over this continent. Because in any way we are one, this borders of Africa were imposed on us by the colonizers, we need leaders who are going to lead us to that drain where there would be one Africa.

''Adviser Henry Gomez Should Desist From Misleading The General Public''.
As usual; today on my route to work around 700 hours as I tuned in to Star FM ‘‘Wakeup Gambia show’’ moderated by Pa Nderry Touray. Which happens to be one of my loving early morning shows as it enlightens me on current affairs and the activities in our motherland.
Readers could recall that Henry Gomez’s Gambia Party for Democracy and Progress (GPDP) is one of those existing ghost political parties without representation in the National Assembly neither at the Council across the length and breadth of The Gambia with its slogan of ‘‘Moh Beah Ballou’’.
During the show Henry Gomez an adviser to the President and former Minister of Youth and Sports lamented on the achievements of the Barrow led administration and the stands of his political Party GPDP. He went further to highlight that President Barrow will serve his presidency term till 2021. He informed all that there is no shortcut to the presidency and any person willing to be president should wait till 2021 to join the wrestling ring.
When Journalist Pa Nderry asked Henry Gomez about his view as per the revocation of Ya Kumba Jaiteh’s nomination as a member of parliament. He was quick to validate that the revocation of her nomination is legal. However, Henry Gomez quoted a non-existence section of The Gambian 1997 constitution (321) to substantiate his claim.
Besides, when I heard of the utterance of the none existing section (321). So many things came to mind as I was dumbfounded, mystified and befuddled. The question is how can a person who has no idea about the supreme book of the land be an adviser to the Commander-in-Chief.
Ya Kumba Jaiteh
Furthermore, if Henry Gomez whose wish is to occupy the presidential seat is not familiar with the laws of the land then that tells how doomed we are as a sovereign nation. We expect Henry to give correct information to the general public especially with regards to matters that have to do with the constitution.
Meanwhile, President Barrow has nominated Foday Gassama to become the new nominated member of the National Assembly, replacing Ya Kumba Jaiteh who was yanked from the National Assembly. A press release issued by the Office of the President has it that President Barrow relied on section 88(1) (b) of the Constitution of The Gambia to effect the nomination of Gassama.
