Barrow today hit out at his predecessor’s style of governance comparing both reigns to “day and night”.
Still a property-seller, Barrow leapfrogged Jammeh on the country’s hot-seat December 2016 in a tensely contested polls ending the former military man’s 22-year rule with impunity.
Jammeh initially agreed to transfer power upon conceding defeat but reneged from that posturing as he holed at the presidential villa before regional forces forced him out.
And running a comparison between his leadership and his predecessor’s, Barrow was predictably in bashing mood.
“My government and Yahya Jammeh’s government is like day and night. It is completely different that is why we have taken a lot of measures. Part of the reforms is we now want to eliminate cashiers. We want people to be paying to banks and eliminate corruption,” Barrow told EyeAfrica in an interview.
The 56-year-old had had his hot days on the coveted seat after a Jotna group demanded he quit power and honour the coalition 3-year agreement.
The opposition group are facing trial for threatening to uproot the reign of peace and attempting to dislodge a democratically elected government.
