Gambian Information Minister Resigns

By Ikenga Chronicles January 10, 2017

Gambian Information Minister and President Yahya Jammeh’s Spokesman, Sheriff Bojang has resigned to protest the refusal of his boss to accept defeat in last month’s presidential election.

Jammeh had initially accepted that opposition leader Adama Barrow won the election, but then reversed his decision, citing electoral “abnormalities”.

Tendering his resignation, Sherriff said: ‘’Efforts to contest the results were an attempt to subvert the express will of the Gambian people.”

“The Gambia has decided and we must accept and respect this decision.”

A trio of West African leaders, including Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, will travel to the country on Wednesday in a second bid to convince him to accept the results.
