Wrtten and Shared Essa Bokarr SY.
Soon after a story was ran on social media indicating that Omar Sey former minister of health under the former APRC government is now part of the G D C party, he did not hesitate to reach out thus clarify his position forthwith.
SEY in his words said: “Brother you yourself know that I Omar will not take up such a political position without consulting the family especially yourself as my friend in the family and elder…” Omar went on to say these words in addition: “Brother I can stand tall and say that I never lobbied for or entertain the idea of taking up any political position. I am after building my professional career not a political career. I am a technocrat and or professional who has competence, ethics and compliance as my quick reference guide.
He continued to say: “Brother before the meeting referenced in that article, believe me I was busy preparing for an interview for the Harvard Minsiter leadership program. It was during those preparations that I was called at 1130PM at night by G D C. I was told the party leader wanted to see me. Therefore in the spirit of national development and capacity building I am always ready to answer to any call where my advise is needed” Sey indicated.. According the Honorable former minister he was asked to report to the party leaders office at 4PM the following day. Which he said he was still being driven by the spirit of nation building. According to Sey any profeasional could be consulted by any party leader, regardless of one’s political affiliation or party loyalty. SEY said, when he arrived at the meeting he of course informed the party committeeormembers present at the venue together with its leader Honorable Mama Kandeh that he had a phone call he was waiting for from those who short listed him for the Harvard minister leadership position. Therefore he told them he had only 15 minutes to leave. Sey said he suggested to the party leader for them to meet the next day and then he would hear him out thus advise on anything or to be more precise health related projects if needed. Sey said to his dismay and surprise before he stepped out it was announced that him and others were identified to occupy positions, like the one attributed to his name in the publication. Which he is refuting here. He said he thought it was just a suggestion or a passing commentary by people who were excited to see him at the venue. But it later turned out to be something else! Therefore was going to call the party leader out of respect when he reached home and turn it down.
SEY therefore he left and went ahead to talk the team at Harvard. Afterwards He went home and was with his family waiting for the right hour to call and turn down the offer or proposal from G D C. He said out of respect he did not want to disgrace the party leader by rejecting the proposal in public. Before making the call to turn down the position or offer he was contacted by his wife in the United Kingdom who told him that she saw his picture and name on the media saying he is now part of THE G DC. Based on the conversation one can hear from the tone of Omar Sey’ s voice that he was shocked and taken by surprise. SEY said he sees no harm in honoring an invitation from any party leader for a talk and would have answered to the call of other party leaders like he did for Honorable Mama Kanteh but that does not mean he would accept a political position or intends to do so. Omar before closing said:” My brother I am thinking of developing my professional career not a political career. In fact as far as my knowledge and role in the health services is concerned I have reached a stage that many have not reached yet from our part of Africa ….” Certainly Omar said so in humility but I Essa know that is a fact. As we speak there are people in Texas our family has contacted so that they can join hands with Omar and other professionals to set up a clinic or hospital in The Gambia. Omar is also busy searching for funding to help set up the center which matches my own efforts.
FARAFENI has in fact offered to allocate a 200×100 plot of land around Bereto for such projects. Special thanks go to UDP NATIONAL assembly member Dembo Camara, Uncle Karamo Jadama, Lang DIBBA SOSSEH,Kebba Jammeh and team for making it easy for us to work with people in that area.
Before any pounces on Omar Momodou Inna Sey on this, just make sure you get the facts first..Omar did not accept any position at G D C It was not accurate information.
Finally my advise to my brother Omar is DO NOT ENGAGE IN ANY BACK AND FORTH as the old saying goes :” Silence is the medicine for fools”
The end shall always determine the means Inshaa Allah.
Once you are on the right track and your conscience is clear within SINCERITY I am with you for every reasonable step you take.
I do criticise my own family members all the time when they go wrong but once they are not I fear no arsenal facing them. Just so you know that as well.
