Ex President Yahya Jammeh Sends Gambia Into Financial Distress As He Allegedly Emptied Treasury Of Over $11 Million

After weeks of uncertainties and the eventual exit of Gambia’s former president Yahya Jammeh, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is reporting that over $11million has been declared missing from The Gambia's treasury as the ex-leader goes into exile.


Yahya Jammeh, who was defeated by Adama Barrow in the December 1 presidential poll, finally left the country in the evening of Saturday, January 21, 2017 after 22 years of holding sway as the president of the tiny West African country.

An adviser to President Adama Barrow, Mai Ahmad Fatty, who spoke to reporters in the Senegalese capital Dakar, said that The Gambia was in financial distress as a result of this.


"The coffers are virtually empty. It has been confirmed by technicians in the ministry of finance and the Central Bank of the Gambia," Fatty said.

“There is no money in the coffers. It’s what we have been told. But the day we actually take office, I will take a look at all the documents and evidence and we will clarify all of it,” President Barrow on the other hand reportedly said.

Fatty alleged that more than $11m has disappeared from The Gambia’s treasury in the past two weeks alone.

The BBC however has not been able to independently verify the claims.



Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Nigerian APC national leader Bola Tinubu helped facilitate peace in Gambia over the weekend by allowing his private jet to fly out former president Yahya Jammeh and his family into exile.

The jet, VP-CBT Falcon, had been in the care of Alpha Conde, Guinea president and close friend to Tinubu who flew out from Gambia with Jammeh aboard the plane.

Such wickedness!

Wonder when some of these African leaders wil learn that they are called to serve and not steal.
How do they sleep at night knowing their people aren't happy with them?

Tinubu helped him fly out his family and his loot into exile you mean? Tinubu does not extend his help and generosity without a price. He sure got a share of that treasury.

The man no sabi thief sef. He had to borrow private jet from a Nigerian that is not even a president. After 22yrs e no buy jet. Gambians should be happy. Only Diezani sef don sell all of una and use your children unborn as collateral for another 1000 years. As them dey born, the owners go dey collect direct from the labour room.

Too bad

BEDS AND ROSES said...

Na their way.
That is why Africa remains being backward, we have very wicked leaders.
Can Obama empty US treasury like that.
All the while he didn't want to leave I knew he was busy looting. He's looted enuf for his generation and he's retired to Guinea.
Our leaders are the number1 problem we are facing in Africa, Nigeria included.

The new president is a criminal. So he wants to use this accusation to bankrupt Gambia? The same way apc is accusing Jonathan's cabinets and at the same time destroying this nation. He better put his ass together and work for Gambians. Ndi oshi ndi oshi
