Accountability before Continuity
Cutting the long story short there is no business without profit and loss. Running a government is just another business by considering resource interplay. People of Gambia deserve to know what is happening to public money and other vital resources.
One person can shed light and bound to give clean account of what happens with tax payer funds is Yaya Jammeh. He is chief custodian of resources entrusted to a sitting government presiding as leader.
For more than 22 years, Yaya Jammeh promised world class standard of economic development to a nation relying on peanut farming and sale of assorted tourism products. It is now clear that Gambia is nothing near superpower economy of world class status after more than 22 years political demagogy.
In contrast, the man occupying highest political seat and being chief custodian of public money is richer than the state.
For that man to insist taking part in presidential elections as his bid serving 5th Term he must answer lot of questions right.
One big question for Yaya Jammeh that many concerned persons frequently want an answer is for him to explain where all the money under his custody disappeared as president. It is not enough for Yaya Jammeh making another loud mouth talk over national radio and television.
The situation requires a clean Balance Sheet for the occupier of Gambian presidency who happens to be Yaya Jammeh over 22 years now. Another clean Balance Sheet is required for Office of the President. A third Balance Sheet is required for Government of Gambia (GG). Put together, competent persons will make sense of where the balance of finance and economic power resides.
Meanwhile, it will be seen as serious risk of public finance and national resources by letting Yaya Jammeh to escape scrutiny in another bogus election after which he takes custody without being accountable. Going to elections with Yaya Jammeh and not subjecting him to vigorous financial scrutiny will be seen as most fatal resource risk on the part of all active political stakeholders. You are one of those who can stop that from happening. Have your say before it is too late. Stop Yaya Jammeh from fooling Gambians any longer into another round of bogus election cycle. Stand your rights to prevent total collapse.
Experience already proved that Yaya Jammeh failed as custodian of public money and vital resources. For him to be given 5th Term mandate means he will cause more harm. That can be prevented by good people like you. Please stop Yaya Jammeh from any elections before he stops Gambia from moving anymore.
You don’t have to be expert face reader to determine by his looks if Yaya Jammeh represents public interest. Simply denying Yaya Jammeh the opportunity of mismanaging Gambian economy with his scale of corruption you can prevent further economic crime by a sitting president. Stand your rights.
Economic Crime Profile of Yaya Jammeh Disqualify him from Fifth Term Presidency. Don’t let him cause further harm to a nation needing recovery from more than 22 years corrupt misrule. Public scrutiny determines that accountability before continuity.
