President Buhari will today depart Abuja for The Gambia where he will be joined by Liberian President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and Ghanaian president, John Mahama, to persuade The Gambian president, Yahya Jammeh, to leave office after he lost to his opponent, Adama Narrow, in the country’s December 1st election.
Hammeh who has been in office for 22 years, had over the weekend disclosed he was going to challenge the electoral victory of Narrow, an indication that he is not ready to leave office.
Immediately after the election, he called Narrow to congratulate him for winning the election. A week later, he announced his rejection of the outcome of the election and is demanding for a fresh election that according to him will be conducted by God fearing electoral officers.
