New Gambia President Adama Barrow Lands In Gambia Amid Tight Security - Photos


Citizens of Gambia has finally gotten their wish as their new president Adama Barrow has finally returned home today being Thursday 26th 2017, to solidify his position as the country's first new commander in chief in two decades after a political crisis that sent the previous ruler into exile. 

Gambians eagerly awaited Barrow at the airport in Banjul amid tight security. Barrow defeated Jammeh in 1st December presidential elections, but the tyrannic ruler did not want to concede power. Barrow was sworn into office on Jan. 19 at the Gambian Embassy in neighboring Senegal because of security threats as Jammeh clung to power.

Jammeh finally left Gambia last weekend, bowing to international pressure that included a regional military force, ending a more than 22-year rule. The West African troops were poised to oust Jammeh if diplomatic talks failed.

There are currently 2,500 of the ECOWAS troops still in Gambia — in the capital, Banjul, as well as at key crossing points between Gambia and Senegal and at the port and airport, according to Sweden's U.N. Ambassador Olof Skoog, the current U.N. Security Council president.
