Jammeh’s Foreign Affairs Minister Resigns, Flees Gambia

By Ikenga Chronicles January 17, 2017

The Gambia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Neneh MacDouall-Gaye has tendered her resignation letter before fleeing the country on Tuesday Morning.

MacDouall-Gaye’s resignation comes barely a week after Gambia’s Information Minister, Sheriff Bojang, resigned and fled the country in protest over the refusal of Jammeh to accept the result of December’s presidential election.

Recall that the country’s Supreme Court had on Monday refused Jammeh and his party’s application to stop the inauguration of  President-elect Adama Barrow.

The resignation letter reads: “This letter serves as a formal notice of my resignation as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia.”

“After due deliberation, I am of the conviction that under the prevailing circumstances I cannot effectively serve as Foreign Minister.”

She thanked Jammeh for the opportunity to serve the country while praying to Allah that the country’s political “impasse be resolved peacefully to the pride of The Gambia nation.”
