Breaking: Barrow sworn in as gambia’s president


Barrow has been eventually sworn in as The Gambia’s president in his country’s embassy in Senegal.
Although Yahya Jammeh has refuse to step down.
Ecowas gave jammeh until midnight of Wednesday to step down, but he refused.
Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, who initiated a last minute effort to break the political deadlock, said Jammeh was adamant about hanging on to power..
Aziz flew in to the Gambian capital Banjul on Wednesday evening to meet Jammeh before flying on to Dakar airport for further discussions with Barrow and Senegal’s President Macky Sall.
“I am now less pessimistic [that Mr Jammeh] will work on a peaceful solution that is in the best interest for everyone,” Aziz said.
