Adama Barrow Will Be Sworn in Today, Says Gambian Citizens

Gambian citizens who voted for president-elect insist that Adama Barrow will be sworn in today on Gambian soil.

A spokesman for the opposition coalition, Halifa Salla, spoke Wednesday evening as the tiny West African country headed for a likely midnight showdown with President Yahya Jammeh, who refuses to leave office.

Senegalese troops with a regional force (ECOWAS) are moving toward Gambia’s borders as international pressure increases on Jammeh to leave power.

His mandate had been set to expire on Thursday, but lawmakers voted to extend Jammeh’s term by three months.
