My reaction is meant to address, curtail and contain  commentaries like the one  below or in the middle of message. It was  posted  on my wall after Minister Omar Sey clarified his position thus dissociating himself from being part of G D C after it was reported on other media platforms.
Certainly I will not exclude or spare anyone who writes such filth  or thinks that the only way to criticise is by insulting party leaders or party members or by spreading whirling accusations against people  without facts to back that position up!  I don’t want anyone to use my face book page or our media house being  Banjul Focus or  Hello Gambia  to castigate,  insult or send inflamatory language to others especially people who can be our parents.
See the said commentary below

If anyone wants to be publishing such filth  you are  being cautioned not to send  it to my page or any where near the Hello Gambia and Banjul Focus team. Our team is also warning commentators on the site itself that we can trace you even if you use a pen name. There are those who use other electronic devices like Ipads,or some so shameleesly hide behind the key boards of machines found in public places like libraries to insult others especially public officials. If you mean business and have confidence in yourself why hide and why insult..Simply observe, derive facts and criticise
I have been BLOCKING  similar emails or messages against  the person of MaiFatty somany times.. Why insult Mai or anyone else?.
 Criticise the with facts and see if we wont publish it but hate and insults is not me. Search for another platform!  Ask any party leader or top gov ranker if  THEY WOULD EVEN DREAM OF  ESSA BOKARR SEY would praise them but they would also never see or hear me insult them either Inshaa Allah
To such people who feed on insults and character assasination  I say be warned that we will not hesitate cooperating with law enforcement to serve the wrong doer the  dish you wished to eat from a legal and security angle
Most of those who do so,  use pen names and then expect us to amplify their hate or disrespectful  messages for tnem? Never ever! We are not destructive we are constructive. When I  write I do put my name in there and I assume full responsibility of what I write and publish it.  So do I expect any honorable man or woman to behave or act on social media or at best  cyber space.
Finally let me say this here  and now! Criticism is healthy but disrespect and hate mongering does not impress me or any one whose mission is to see a better Gambia. On that note, I will  delete and block.anyone who attempts using my page or our media house to spread inflammatory and disrespectful persomal attackss against any party, party leaders,  it’s  members, or worse of all a tribe or religion.
I also DO.NOT AGREE AND WILL.NEVER AGREE  with the idea or feeling that every one in U D P is a tribalist. Saying so is in fact is  A SIN..Allah knows it is not true!  ALLAH LOVES THE TRUTH. Look here folks,  during my recent visit and stay in The Gambia those who drove me around, guided and served me.with all their hearts included people who are die-hard UDP .sympathizers..
In fact my cousin Sarjo D King the one who was driving me around and making sure that the  food i ate, the water  I  drank was SAFE is the son of Lang Dibba Sosseh of FARAFENI one of the founder members of UDP.
My wife is directly related to the Dibbas on her paternal side. Genuine criticism is welcome but I cannot have a kin who is my children’s grandfather in a party and then turn around saying it  is compose of  TRIBAL elements.
I FEAR ALLAH NOT ANY PERSON OR PARTY.
If a party does wrong or goes wrong everyone knows Essa will never spare it but I will also not side with FALSEHOOD against that party either

    Well said your Excellency Sey.As Gambians we must wake up to the realities of our country. After 22yrars of misguided policies and programs no right thinking person should expect miracles to be performed in the short period since the emergence of the new Gambia. Of courseewe are all impatient for change and in our frustration some of us loose sight of the needto be matured and hhonest critics of what we perceive as wrong. Quite simply no government matter how good its intentions might be can make every body happy. This is where democracy comes in giving everybody the right to express their opinion. In so doing one has to respect civilised behaviour and realise that the responsibility of free speech goes with the obligation of respect for others. Those who disregard this principle have no place in the civilised public domain. There is no party in the Gambia today that hasn’t got a tribal taint. That is the plain fact. Nonetheless it is up to the leaders to manage the phenomenon skillfully so as not to cause prejudice to the broader political landscape. Once we are able to do so our politics will continue to be credible. We in the Gambia are in a unique situation where we find that almost everyone has some kind of relationship with your neighbour. We are all one big extended family. Mandinkas, Woolf’s,Fulas, Jolsd, Sershulays etc. etc.have over the years and have lived in peace with each other. There is no reason why that should not continue to be the case. But with misplaced criticisms, insults,and character assasination we run the risk of inflaming tensions and causing discord, unrest and suffering among ourselves. This is why I agree with you to block all anti social comments that unscrupulous individuals who do not have the best interest of the country at heart may try to publish through your sites.Our new Gambia needs matured and constructive criticisms and comments not anything that will sow seeds of discord.
