The Secretary General and party leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), Lawyer Ousainou Darboe has announced that he has obtained his income tax clearance, while telling his supporters that he was on his way to getting nominated for the presidential elections scheduled for December 4.
The UDP party leader on Thursday returned home from a countrywide tour with a grand style welcome by his supporters.
Highlighting on ongoing issues regarding his qualification to run for the December 4th presidential elections, Darboe said: “I’m going to be nominated. We are doing the preparatory acts for the nomination and I am happy to announce to you that the so-called reason they believe Ousainou Darboe will not be nominated no longer holds.”
“I will tell you that I have on the 16th of October obtained my income tax clearance and in the next couple of days, I am going to prepare a declaration of my assets which I will submit to the IEC before the 1st November, on my nomination date, so that those people who want to take objection, who want to go to court to challenge Ousainou Darboe’s nomination are free to do so,” he continued.
“They will find Ousainou Darboe on a terrain that he is very familiar with, more familiar with than any of them. They will find me there and we will teach them what happens to busy- bodies.”
