Buhari Set for Gambia to Persuade Jammeh to Hand Power


President Muhammadu Buhari will travel to Gambia, today Tuesday, with other West Africa leaders to persuade President Yahya Jammeh to hand power over to Adama Barrow, the president-elect.

John Mahama, Ghanaian president who just lost and conceded will also join the African leaders in persuading Jammeh to relinquish power.

Jammeh lost the just-concluded election in the country, and conceded the elections to Barrow, a real estate mogul who won with 222,708 votes (43.3%), while Jammeh polled 208,487 (39.6%).

Jammeh who conceded to defeat and congratulated the president elect Barrow later turned round to reject the election result calling for thorough investigation.
