Have you ever noticed that President Adama Barrow is never seen in public without wearing his locally made silver ring on the fourth finger of his left hand?
Well, reliable reports reaching What’s On-Gambia has revealed that the ring was provided for him by a marabout for spiritual reasons.
According to a source: “It is a ‘supernatural ring’ that he started wearing shortly after he was announced as the opposition coalition flagbearer last year before the presidential election.”
President Barrow has allegedly never taken the ring off since it was given to him leaving some Gambians wondering about his tawakkul (trust in Allah).
“I think he is a devout Muslim but like most of us, he also believes in the work of marabouts. I would be very surprised if he stops wearing the ring,” said our source.
Gambian politicians are famous for paying thousands of dalasi to marabouts in bids to boost their popularity and win elections.
