The National Mobiliser of the Opposition Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction, Mayor Yankuba Colley, has said that his party is not worried about current investigations into the affairs of its national headquarters in Kanifing.
Mayor Colley was responding to recent rumours that the police are conducting an investigation in relation to the APRC Bureau.
“Yes we heard about an investigation about our bureau though no one has approached us officially on the matter. But as far as the APRC is concerned, we have nothing to fear about this investigation. The bureau is legally occupied by the party and we have proof of that,” Mayor Colley told The Standard yesterday.
He continued: “What people or the police need to understand is that the Bureau is rented to the APRC by the Asset Management & Recovery Corporation (AMRC) with an option of buying it. I believe if they want to investigate about the bureau the best place for them to go is to the AMRC who can explain better. We are just tenants and that’s all,” he added.
Mayor however went on to allege that this is part of the witch-hunt against the party. ”We in the APRC are not surprise by all the witch hunting that is being perpetrated against us but I strongly think what we should have prioritized now as Gambians is to reconcile and move on as a nation of one people,” he said.
He added: “I also want to use the opportunity to call on the vanguards of the party together with all APRC militants, supporters and sympathizers to remain solidly behind the party in this trying time”.
