Guys what a sickening ignorance to see the security officers in uniform, men and women,police, immigration and army openly running and chanting Pro Jammeh songs all the way from Brikama to Banjul and across the the country.This is a plain voilation of the constitution and the Opposition camp should see this as an invalidation of the whole election process period.

There is no egg without a chicken, and no chicken without egg.

Jammeh is lawless and grand thief of everything. He may end up stealing this election too. How that ends in the long or short run will be served in the plate for Jammeh's personal consumption. Gambians will no longer tolerate brutal dictatorship. It has been argued by many Gambians that the country is still a military dictatorship. Remember Libya and the arab world. People's will shall eventually prevail. Let Jammeh not prolong self deceit. What has not worked for his boss Maomar Gaddafi will not work for Jammeh.

REPEATING THAT ELECTION DAY IS ELECTION SHAMBLES AND FORGONE CONCLUSION; FOR JAMMEH'S MILLIONS AND "WE PLEDGED OUR FIRM ALLEGIANCE!" "OUR PROMISE WE RENEW!" from IEC, Ministers, Regional Governors, Chiefs, Alkalos, Imams, Community elders, National Youth Services, GRTS, Supreme Islamic Council, APRC Hajj pilgrims, Law Enforcement agents, Projects, Tractors, Vehicles, Moto-Bikes, Threats and State terror will do the TALKING AND "LEVEL PLAYING FIELD"!

Kobo, with the style and manner of fraudulent elections Jammeh is capable of stealing this one too. What that will yield for him is something else. Once a rogue, what else can a person of low integrity be.

QUOTES OF WEEK
"He (Hallifa Sallah) finally analyzed the system that prevails in The Gambia which does not require the winner to acquire more than 50 percent of the votes cast. He supported the system which requires the successful candidate to acquire more that fifty percent of the votes cast or necessitate a second round of voting. He pointed out that President Jammeh has amended the constitution to enable him to be elected even if he has less than 50 percent of the votes."

"According to Gomez, due to overstay in power by many African leaders, Africa is today suffering from all forms of problems."

"Despite the reign of democratic governance in Africa , some leaders have clutched to political power for decades, using state instruments to prolong their regimes against constitution provisions.

Unfortunately, when the leaders manipulate and abuse their positions to stay in power, they still find support to continue autocracy?"

"We all need to thank our stars for having the most peaceful election campaigns this country has ever witnessed since the advent of the APRC regime, which even though can be attributed to many factors, but most of the credit should definitely go to all the presidential candidates and their supporters, as well as the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), for comporting themselves throughout the period.

However, the most important factor for the maintenance of the peace had been attributed to President Yahya Jammeh’s continuous call on his supporters throughout the campaign to maintain the peace, which was no doubt quite a significant factor in the peaceful nature of the campaign.

However, the peaceful nature of the elections was just one aspect, but certainly, despite all the efforts made by the IEC to ensure a level playing field, President Jammeh had had more than a fair share of incumbency advantage. During his campaign tour, which he dubbed, a ‘thank you’ tour, we saw him accompanied by all the security chiefs, almost half of the officers and men of the Gambia National Army and the Gambia Police Force, together with the other security apparatus, as well as almost all senior civil servants. We also saw almost half of the fleet of government vehicles and army trucks being mobilized to join the campaign and being used to transport APRC supporters to the different venues. It was however quite an embarrassment to see our soldiers and the police in uniform, who are supposed to be on duty to secure this country, singing and dancing with the crowd and scrambling with the civilian population to catch ‘T’ shirts and biscuits being thrown from President Jammeh’s vehicle.

Yet, there was not even a single policeman seen accompanying the opposition candidates throughout their campaign, as if they did not deserve any protection from the state. That itself was a clear indication of the sort of lopsided democracy operating in this country.

However, one group that accompanied President Jammeh’s campaign tour which has stirred the biggest disappointment amongst most people was the leadership of the Supreme Islamic Council and some respectable imams. “If the very people we look up to for spiritual guidance can stoop so low just because of the crumbs they get from President Jammeh and his regime, then this country is certainly heading for the rocks,” said one analyst. He questioned how long Gambians will continue to adore and respect their religious leaders if those leaders are seen to blatantly disregard their spiritual responsibilities in favour of money and material consideration."
