Brikama Area Council Chairman Sheriffo Sonko has strongly rejected any claims it was UDP supporters who voted for him as chairman of BAC.
“That’s not true. So many people voted for me who are members of APRC and so many members of GDC voted for me. It’s 100% clear that it’s not only UDP [supporters] who voted me in here but it is that it is the UDP ticket but they did not spend a penny on me,” Sonko told The Fatu Network in an exclusively interview.
Sonko was a member of the UDP and his standing in the party saw him swat aside his challengers in the party to become the party’s candidate in the Brikama Area Council local government election in 2018.
However, Sonko is no longer a member of the party as he has fallen out with the party after the party sacked him last year. UDP accused him of straying from the cause of the party.
