The Gambia’s President-elect Adama Barrow, the man expected to be sworn in today as Gambia’s new President has declared that Alhaji Yahya Jammeh’s era is over.
‘My dearest Gambians – the presidency of Yahya Jammeh is officially over. The new era of Gambia is here at last. #NewGambia ,” Barrow wrote on his twitter handle this morning.
Reports says that Barrow, going by the vows of West African Leaders, is expected to be sworn in today in the Gambian embassy at Dakar, Senegal as Jammeh has ignored military threats and stayed put in Banjul, the Gambian capital city.
Barrow was flown to the Senegalese capital with a Nigerian Presidential jet prior to his swearing in which will be done later today at the Gambian Embassy.
