One Haddy Jallow of Banjul has asked the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to investigate the allegation surrounding the National Assembly member for Banjul South, Fatoumata Njai, regarding her having dual-nationality.

Fatoumata Njai is also known as Touma Njai. She was declared winner in the April 9 National Assembly elections in Banjul South.

Haddy Jallow, through her lawyer, Lamin K. Mboge has on the 19 April written to the Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) informing him that Touma Njie’s dual nationality was not known to her at the time of her nominations even though rumours were rife that she holds citizenship of England, making her a British national at the time of her nomination.
