IN SEARCH OF A POLITICAL FUTURE THE QUESTIONS ON THE POLITCAL FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY AFTER DR NAIK’S COMMENTS

on

First and foremost, the National Council for civic education should have been empowered to utilise radio, television, film , public lectures  to promote  knowledge on the content of the constitution. If that happened the ridiculous rumours that Jammeh would be a Monarch in January 2015 would not have spread through the Senegalese Media. It would have been clear that a Sovereign Republic does not transform into a Republic overnight.In the same vein, after Dr Zakir Naik ‘s lectures a number of people are claiming that the Gambia is to be transformed into an Islamic Republic over night. This is also impossible. Section 100 subsection 2 has made it very clear that Gambia should be a secular multi party democratic Republic. It reads:The National Assembly shall not pass a bill

  1. a)  to establish a one party state
  2. b)   to establish any religion as a state religion
Those who administer the state should speak the language of the constitution.   ]]>
