I Handed Over power because I am a Patriot and a Muslim

by on January 21, 2017

In a speech broadcast on state TV, Former President of Gambia, Yahya Jammeh had said, “My decision to step down wasn’t dictated by anything but in the interest of the people of Gambia. All this while, as a Muslim and a patriot, I believe it is not necessary that a single drop of blood be shed.

“I have decided today in good conscience to relinquish the mantle of leadership of this great nation with infinite gratitude to all Gambians. I promise before Allah and the entire nation that all the issues we currently face will be resolved peacefully.

“My decision today was not dictated by anything else but the supreme interest of you, the Gambian people and our dear country. I’m proud and honoured to have served our country, the Gambia.”

    Dear Mr. Jammeh, you handed over because you didn’t have any other alternative. What happened to your 90 days state of emergency; leadership forever; and your until-May-when-we-would-have-enough-justices statements. Just wait for justice in no distance time maybe in Hague
