Gambian Civil Society Distances Itself From NTCG
Saturday, 15 September 2012 00:09(Press Release) – Reference is made to the publication in various media outlets and a press conference in Senegal announcing the formation of a National Transitional Council for the Gambia (NTCG).
Some founder members of the CSAG are named as members of the NTCG namely: Alh. Boubacarr Baldeh and Ndey Tapha Sosseh.
The CSAG is not aware of this organisation and has had no contact with the person purporting to be its leader. Their names have also been illegally appended to the publication as none of the named persons gave permission for their names to be used.
CSAG is a civil society organisation with set aims and objectives and will not be detracted from its mission by such publications which are designed to misinform and create misunderstanding among people who are genuinely working towards bringing about change in a country that is currently living under the rule of fear. Such publications do more harm than good and are mischievous and baseless.
The CSAG hereby informs the Gambian public and the world at large that it has no connections whatsoever with the NTCG.
It condemns the illegitimate use of the names of its members without authorisation and calls for the immediate removal of their names from this publication.
CSAG bases its partnerships on consultation, consensus, mutual respect and understanding and cannot and will not work with individuals or organisations that do NOT operate with the same principles.
CSAG seizes this opportunity to inform all individuals, organisations and partners that it will not tolerate the use of the name of its organisation, symbols and or members for any publicity or cause without due consultation and authorisation.
CSAG has the right to take the appropriate actions against perpetrators of such actions.
