Jammel Declares 90 Day Emergency, As Nigeria Warship Heads To Gambia

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh on Tuesday  declared a 90-day state of emergency less than 48 hours before his official mandate ends, according to the Gambia Television.

Jammel who lost the presidential election on December 1, 2016 to his rival, Adama Barrow had earlier conceded defeat but in less than a week he retracted his decision.

Jammeh tenure ends tomorrow  and the international community has told him he should respect the wishes of his people and hand over power to President –elect Adama Barrow.

In a broadcast yesterday, he decried “extraordinary” foreign interference in his country’s affairs and the December election.

President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have twice visited Banjul, the Gambian capital, to persuade Jammeh to respect the election result but they were unsuccessful.

A Nigeria has deployed a warship to put further pressure on Jammeh to step down
