Let us make it loud and clear that the valid constitution of the Gambia is the 1997 constitution which establishes a Sovereign Republic under which Sovereignty resides in the people. No constitution exists in the Gambia which has made Gambia an Islamic state.

The only option the President has is to overthrow the 1997 Constitution and put into force a new Constitution which makes the Gambia an Islamic Republic. Everyone knows that such a development is impossible. This is why we assert that the impossible is impossible.

Citizens should now ask anybody who says that the Gambia is an Islamic Republic to produce the Constitution of an Islamic Republic. If they fail to do so you should then ask how you could have a state without a Constitution.

Without a Constitution which establishes Gambia as an Islamic Republic then any declaration to that effect is chaff in the wind.
