Pres. Buhari on Tuesday morning arrived Banjul, The Gambia, to meet with the country’s President, Yahya Jammeh, who lost the presidential election penultimate week.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the Nigerian leader, arrived together with Pres. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia, who is the current Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS, and Pres. Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra-Leone.
The defeated President of Ghana, John Mahama, who had earlier arrived Banjul, joined the other West African leaders to meet Jammeh at the CoCo Ocean Resort and Spa, Banjul.
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.”
