Foreign Affairs Minister Lawyer Darboe has compared President Adama Barrow’s ascension to power to that of the prophethood of Moses who has been sent by Allah to rescue the people of Israel.
“Gambians were like the people of Israel tormented by their ruler. People were incarcerated, killed and disappeared by their leader. But just as Moses has people working with him who listened to him, so did Adama, and that is you, the great Gambian people.
“On the 5th of December when I walked to freedom, I found President-elect Adama Barrow at my house in Pipeline, he embraced me virtually in tears and I said, ‘Adama you are like the Moses of The Gambia’,” Darboe said it in a meeting with Gambians in New York, United States on Saturday.
The meeting which was attended by Gambians across all the United States.
