President MUHAMMADU BUHARI is expected to today travel to Gambia to help resolve the political impasse in the West African country.
President BUHARI will join his Liberian counterpart, ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF, to persuade Gambian President YAHYA JAMMEH to concede defeat.
Presidential spokesman, GARBA SHEHU who confirmed that diplomacy is ongoing on said there would be an official briefing to reporters on the matter.
YAHYA JAMMEH, who initially conceded defeat to opposition candidate ADAMA BARROW, later reneged; saying he would order a fresh election.
Observers and international organisations like ECOWAS, the UN and the U.S. have all asked YAHYA JAMMEH to respect the wish of Gambians and relinquish power after 22 years in office.
