It appears that Gambia’s opposition parties are close to forming an alliance to fight the country’s De Facto dictator Yahya Jammeh, in the upcoming December, 1st 2016, Presidential elections, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. An alliance of opposition parties is about to be formed, a source has hinted. The proposed alliance is going to be formally announced today Tuesday at a news conference to be held at Tango, source said. The press conference has been scheduled at 14:30 PM, according to reliable sources.

Sources said the local press in The Gambia have been invited to attend Tuesday’s press conference. Details of the press conference would be published as soon as we receive update from Banjul.

This followed efforts spearheaded by Fatoumatta Tambajang to bring the opposition together to form a coalition to unseat Jammeh in the coming polls. The PPP and main opposition UDP have been meeting in recent weeks. NDAM leader Lamin Waa Juwara has also appealed to his colleagues in the opposition to bury their difference to come together in the interest of the nation to eject the despotic Jammeh regime.

Meanwhile, panic grips the Kanilai dictator. Jammeh is increasingly worried about the growing call for his removal from office come December, 1st, 2016. His own party, the APRC is in total disarray. This is largely due to Jammeh’s handling of state of affairs. There is hunger and massive unemployment in the country. APRC supporters said they have had enough of Jammeh and his inept regime.
