Kairo News has confirmed the resignation of three members of the Committee for the Restoration of Democracy in the Gambia (CORDEG). This came on the heels of the immediate withdrawal of the Gambia Democratic Action Group (GDAG) from CORDEG on Sunday.
The members who tendered their resignations with immediate effect were the Steering Committee Representatives for the Scandanavia, Jainaba Bah of Sweden and Demba Dem of The Netherlands. Also parting with CORDEG was the North Carolina based Lamin Tunkara who until his resignation was the Director of Administration, Technology and Logistics of CORDEG.
All these people threw in their towel after they were dissatisfied with CORDEG’s operations. CORDEG emanated from the May 2013 Gambia Conference for Democracy and Good Governance held in the city of Raleigh, North Carolina.
The conference brought together Gambians from all walks of life to discuss on how to defeat dictatorship in the Gambia and restore democracy, the rule of law and good governance in the country.
Kairo News has written to the Chairman of CORDEG Dr. Abdoulaye Saine, requesting for his reaction to the resignation galore.
