PHOTOS: Presidents Buhari, Johnson Sirleaf, Koroma, Mahama in Gambia for mediation talks with Jammeh


President Muhammadu Buhari, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia, who is the current Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS, President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra-Leone and out-going President of Ghana, John Mahama are in Banjul to try to persuade incumbent President Yahya Jammeh to agree "to leave office" after his election defeat.

President Jammeh had earlier conceded defeat in the election, after a 22-year rule, but recanted a week later, asking for fresh polls to be conducted by a “god-fearing and independent electoral commission.”

President Buhari and the ECOWAS leaders will discuss the ensuing impasse in The Gambia with President Jammeh and insist on the sanctity of the electoral process, and respect the wishes of the people.





They would also ask their host to respect the Constitution of his own country, and maintain the inviolability of an electoral process that had been concluded, and in which he had admitted defeat, and congratulated his main challenger.

The leaders are also scheduled to meet the President-elect, Adama Barrow.
