Ousainou Darboe will once again emerge as the UDP Secretary General, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. Highly placed sources within the UDP have hinted that Darboe’s election is a done deal. We can safely report that Darboe will continue to occupy the position of Party Secretary General.

A UDP insider, who spoke to us on condition of strict anonymity said: “Nothing is going to change as far as the position of Party Secretary General. Ousainou Darboe is our leader, and he will continue to be our leader. The position of Secretary General and Party Leader is for Darboe. There is nothing new from this end besides the swap of positions here and there.”

“Based on the information I am receiving Darboe is going to be our flag bearer in the coming elections. The Congress was not meant to select a flag bearer. I am telling you that we are not going heed to Jammeh’s age limit for the Presidency. Darboe is going to continue to lead this party. He is going to lead us during this crucial period of emancipating our country from the clutches of Jammeh’s dictatorship,” insider added.

Mr. Ousainou Darboe is expected to make a formal acceptance speech for his election as party leader and Secretary General once the election process is finalized. We can once again safely report that Ousainou Darboe is the UDP Secretary General and Party Leader.
