Talking to the media, Halifa said the objective of his mission to Europe was to give a lecture on Democracy, Justice, Reconciliation and Development.
This he said was organized by Gambian organisations in Norway but because of the elaborate presentations touching on what is now the fundamental objectives of the nation, he was invited to Sweden, Denmark, Oslo and finally Germany to meet the Gambia communities and citizens in those countries who have concerns over the current international situation.
Halifa Sallah stated that the visit turned out to be a mission rather than just a lecture to help Gambians to really understand what happened during the impasse and how it came about.
He said the fact that a new Gambia has been born, the emphasis is that without a new Gambian, the new Gambia we envisage will not be.
“I was there as a sovereign Gambian citizen with the mission to build a link with other sovereign Gambian citizens so that we can share knowledge,“ Sallah stated.
