Jammeh is mad at United States!

The Gambia government has angrily reacted to the expulsion from the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, saying it was a good riddance. In a statement issued by the Office of the President in Banjul, the Gambia government blamed the United States for not having good intention for Gambians. It also said the Gambia has never benefitted from AGOA. Find below the full text of the statement: The Government of the Republic of The Gambia congratulates the Government of The United States of America for the removal of The Gambia from the list of eligible sub-Saharan African countries under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), which Act The Gambia has never benefitted from in the first place, since a US Presidential Proclamation designated the country as a beneficiary sub-Saharan African country on March,28 2003. Furthermore, in light of remarks in interviews and statements in the local media made by the Charge d’Affaires of the US embassy in Banjul, it has now become unequivocally clear that the Government of the United States has no good intentions for the people of The Gambia. Consequently and bound by an unshakeable faith in the Almighty Allah alone,it should be clear that the dignified people of The Gambia will not succumb to outside pressures of any kind nor from any source, for, the well being of her people remains paramount for the Government of The Gambia. Office of The President. December 27 2014 Ends
