Gambian President Jammeh Declares State Of Emergency

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh on Tuesday declared a state of emergency, citing foreign interference in a presidential election he lost to opponent Adama Barrow last month.



 The declaration was necessary “due to the unprecedented and extraordinary amount of foreign inference in the December 1 presidential elections and also in the internal affairs of The Gambia,” 


Jammeh said on state television. This had created an “unwarranted hostile atmosphere, threatening the sovereignty, peace, security and stability of the country,” he added. 

According to the Gambian constitution, a state of emergency lasts seven days if the president declares it unilaterally but up to 90 days if the national assembly confirms it. According to Gambian state radio and TV, the state of emergency will be for 90 days. 

Jammeh Also, according to an “Order paper” tagged, “Fourth Assembly”, with sub-title, “First extraordinary session ” and dated 17th January 2017, which was sent to the Senate, the order sought a 90 days stay of a proclamation of a state of emergency in the country effective from 17th January to 17th April, 2017. 


The Order letter which was signed by the Majority Leader and Member for Serrekunda East constituency in the office of the Clerk, National Assembly, Banjul, it also sought for an extension of the life of the National Assembly in the country to 11th July, 2017.

He's just being apprehensive because he thinks that he'd be overtaken by coup. Don't forget he also came into power by coup. So all is a format. Dude will be removed with a jigsaw.

OK bye
