Liberian President ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF has said no deal has been reached yet for Gambian leader YAHYA JAMMEH to quit.
JOHNSON SIRLEAF, the acting head of the Joint Economic Community of West African States, African Union and United Nations, ECOWAS-AU-UN team, said added that an agreement could take a longer time.
The team, made up of President MUHAMMADU BUHARI, JOHNSON-SIRLEAF, the Chairperson of ECOWAS, President ERNEST BAI KOROMA of Sierra Leone, outgoing President JOHN MAHAMA of Ghana, and Dr. MOHAMMED IBN CHAMBAS, the UN Special Representative for West Africa, urged JAMMEH to reconsider his rejection of the election results.
The team was insistent that JAMMEH hand over power within constitutional deadlines, and in accordance with electoral laws of The Gambia.
JOHNSON-SIRLEAF said discussions on The Gambian impasse would continue as ECOWAS leaders meet in Abuja this Saturday.
