Details Of Buhari’s Phone call To Gambia’s President-Elect Revealed

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, December 5 phoned Gambia’s President-elect, Adama Barrow over his electoral victory at the poll.

In a statement signed by Buhari’s Spokesman, Garba Shehu, he revealed that the president made the telephone conversation with Barrow shortly before
his (Buhari’s) trip to the International Forum on Peace and Security in Dakar, Senegal.

Recall that Buhari had earlier congratulated Barrow on Saturday after his triumph was announced.

Shehu quoted Buhari as urging Barrow “to ensure that the transition process is also as smooth as the electoral process and carry everyone along in his
task of taking the Gambia to a new level.”

He said President Buhari also expressed his admiration at the existing rapport between Barrow and other contestants, especially the current president who lost the election.

Buhari was also quoted as stating that ‘’democracy, rule of law and respect for each other were fast taking roots in Africa and that Gambia had also
become a role model for Africa and the world at large.’’
