The secretary general and party leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), Lawyer Ousainou Darboe has disclosed that young men of his party will continue to provide security for him when he becomes president-elect.
Speaking exclusive to West Coast Radio on the Coffee Time with Peter Gomez show, the UDP presidential candidate answered a question of the constitution not providing any law regarding a president-elect including his security and safety.
In that regard, the UDP leader said: “I am not worried about it. Because I am currently having my security, looked after by members of our party. Young men of our party will continue to provide security for me when I’m president-elect.
According to him, “I expect, in the ordinary course of things, that in a true democracy, a president-elect will be provided with all the necessary state security and it should be so.
He continued that, he expects a president-elect to be given security briefings from heads of various security agencies.
“A new government should be properly briefed on things and issues to know burning issues.”
