With ECOWAS Heads of State accepting Morocco's membership in principle to the West African Bloc, the panel also discussed the hypocrisy of ECOWAS in accepting a North African Arabized nation, yet rejecting Haiti's application whose people we share historical, cultural, racial and religious heritage with.

What is the motivation for allowing an Arab League country who we have no racial or cultural relation with yet rejecting Haity who we have close ties with? Is France behind this? What is Senegal's role in this? What role did the Senegalese Muslim Brotherhoods play in this? Are we (Africans) morally weak to allow this heresy to happen? Should the Bloc be dismantled altogether and start a fresh - which serves the interest of Black Africans and Blacks from the Diaspora?  If a fellow Black nation like Haiti cannot join, yet ECOWAS in its wisdom decided to accept a non-Black nation like Morocco, should the Bloc be dismantled altogether?

What does the flag of Siin symbolises? What is the meaning and etymology of the words: Seereer, Saafi, Ndut, Sili, Noon or Laalaa or Ñoominka? Etc.

On this show, anything goes. You set the questions and answer them. No question is stupid. If it is important to you it is important to us. On this first ever Mpatir Ayif show, Tamsier Joof, joined by Laity Sene, Demba Sene and Moussoukoro Sidibé asks whether President Adama Barrow fit to lead The Gambia?
