The award winning human rights activist and also chief Imam of Kanifing East Central Mosque Imam Baba Leigh has said during an interview with the Point Newspaper that President Adama Barrow is not a talkative and should be talking to the nation on certain current and burning issues in the country.
“Let him talk when it is necessary because there are many issues where it is necessary for him to talk, not any other person but he as the father of the nation,” said Imam Baba Leigh who spent years living in exile in America because of his outspokenness during the supressive regime of the former president.
During his last interview, Imam Leigh said :‘do more and speak less’. “It became very popular, but now I say ‘do more but also say something’”. People need to be informed. And information flow is missing to at a large extent in this government. Our president is not a talkative, he is an action-oriented person but if I am to advise him, I will urge him in certain issues to speak as a leader. Let him speak and take a decision. We are the ones who elected him and we love him and we want him to be our president.
So let him talk when it is necessary because there are many issues where it is necessary for him to talk, not any other person but he as the father of the nation. Let him know he is the president and no one else because listening to him at time gives us more confidence and love, knowing we have a president. the Imam concluded.
