The long awaited rally by Dr Isatou Touray, the first female presidential candidate in the Gambia has been scheduled for Saturday 8th October 2016. The meeting will be held in Brikama, Kombo Central at the Canon SSP Lia beginning at 15.30 GMT.
Since launching her candidature on September 2nd, Madam Touray and her campaign team have been working tirelessly to deliver the wishes of most Gambians of forming a united opposition front to combat Dictator Jammeh in December polls. Dr Touray’s campaign team’s efforts have been to unite the opposition parties to appoint a standard-bearer for the opposition. To continue that that work, the campaign is extending an invitation to all political party leaders and their supporters to the rally.

As highlighted in her manifesto, Dr, Touray is deeply aggrieved and remorseful that the innocence, national cohesion and beauty of the Gambia once trumpeted the Smiling Coast of Africa have been severely soiled by the undemocratic regime of Yaya Jammeh. Under Jammeh’s 22 years of misrule, Gambians have witnessed disgraceful attitudes and unspeakable violent unleashed on them by Jammeh without any regards to the constitution or the international laws.

Consequently, the regime has pushed the Gambia to the brink of a violent crisis which will have unimaginable consequences for our dear people. The gravity of our predicament requires a deep sense of urgency to salvage ourselves and the nation. It is with this sense of urgency and patriotism founded on responsibility and leadership that Dr. Isatou Touray emerged; And with the collective support and cooperation of the entire opposition camp and all citizens to forge a formidable force for national salvation.

The Campaign calls on every Gambian of all walks of life to endeavour to attend the Grand Rally so as to send a clear and direct message to Yaya Jammeh that enough is enough. Isatou Touray calls on all Gambians to stand up with boldness and pride in their nation to reclaim our long lost dignity and rights and repair the wounds that Yaya Jammeh and his regime has inflicted on countless individuals, families, communities and the entire nation.

The Grand Rally is also to send a loud message to all opposition parties and leaders that indeed the people desire nothing other than the total unity of the opposition in order to salvage this Great Nation of ours.

The Grand Rally is an open forum for direct engagement with Gambians in which Dr. Touray will deliver to Gambians her vision and mission for free and unfettered discussion.

The Grand Rally will make a call to action for all citizens to actively participate in this noble struggle for the freedom and development of the Gambia.

The Grand Rally will therefore open the national campaign which will reach out to each and every town and village in the Gambia. This is our defining moment to unite and take back our country from dictatorship.

Grand Rally. Saturday 8 October 2016. Canon SSP Lia, Birkama Town. 3.30pm Sharp.
