The United Democratic Party (UDP) has expressed dismay at the “false information” trending on Senegalese social media platform “Buzzsenegal”, that the UDP has threatened to remove Senegalese nationals, including those living in The Gambia, back to their country. 

“Under normal circumstances, the UDP would not have dignified this false information with a response. However, given the sensitivity and the close relationship that exists between the two countries, the UDP deems it fit to clarify and expose the untruth,” the statement revealed.

“The UDP believes in the spirit of Senegambia. That we are the same people with one common goal of having a progressive African continent and share the same origin, divided by colonialism”.

According to the statement, the relationship between The Gambia and Senegal has been cordial and the UDP intends to maintain that strong friendship and family tie.

“The party leader of the UDP is Senegambian and has relatives in Senegal like every other Gambian and Senegalese who have relatives across the border.

“The UDP would like to assure all Gambians and Senegalese that a UDP government will safeguard the ties and relationships shared between these common people from time immemorial.

“We will respect the rights and freedoms of everyone who lives within the confines of The Gambia,” the statement adds.

The UDP went on to caution everyone to avoid such “irresponsible” statements that could compromise and dent the beautiful relationship these two countries share.

“Finally, the party leadership would like to encourage everyone to embrace and promote peace and unity as prescribed in our party values and principles,” concluded the statement.
