Meanwhile, Mr. Jammeh’s term of office expires January 18, 2017 where the President-elect Barrow is expected to be sworn-in on January 19, 2017.
Mr. Jammeh who lost last year’s December elections and call Mr. Barrow to concede defeat has made a u-turn rejecting the results of the election after few days plunging the nation into a state of confusion.
Leaders of the Economic Community for West Africa States (ECOWAS) intervened in the matter by persuading Yahya Jammed to hand over power peaceful through a mediation team led by Ghana’s Ex-President John Mahama.
However, Jammeh vowed to remain in power and any attempt by the ECOWAS to out him will be met with tough resistance.
After seizing the Gambians Electoral Commission Head Office for several days but failed to over turn the election results, he has turned to the Supreme Court in bid to overturn the results.
Today, the Gamabian Supreme Court has postponed the hearing of the case brought before it to May, at a time the swearing-in might have already taken place.
Mr. William Nyarko who have been following the situation in the Gambia and sharing this professional opinion since the inception of the matter was reacting to the court’s ruling on his facebook page.
To Mr. Nyarko, the court’s decision today is a huge setback for dictator Yahya Jammeh as his attempts to use the Supreme Court to overturn the election results have proved abortive.
Now back home – Ghana, the immediate former President of Ghana, John Mahama has been in the news for his decision to take the building allocated to Vice President of Ghana as his retirement home.
Mr. Nyarko seems to disagree with the ex-President Mahama choice based on his comment….
“Jammeh had banked on the Supreme Court sitting today and making a decision to order at least a rerun. Sorry it didn’t happen! You can take three ‘bonguros’ and give ex-president Mahama two …Barrow’s investiture is rolling coming”
