Jammeh Breaks Silence,Says Love for Gambia made him step down

In his first address to the nation since continental leaders made practical move to forcefully eject him, Yahya Jammeh said his decision to quit was not dictated.



Making the announcement on state TV after talks with the presidents of Guinea and Mauritania, Jammeh said he believed that it was not necessary to have a “single drop bloodshed”.

Ending his speech in a shaky voice, he thanked his mother, wife and children for all their prayers and support throughout the 22 years he ruled the country.

“My decision to step down wasn’t dictated by anything but in the interest of the people of Gambia,” he said.

“All this while, as a Muslim and a patriot, I believe it is not necessary that a single drop of blood be shed.

“I have decided today in good conscience to relinquish the mantle of leadership of this great nation with infinite gratitude to all Gambians.

“I promise before Allah and the entire nation that all the issues we currently face will be resolved peacefully.

“My decision today was not dictated by anything else but the supreme interest of you, the Gambian people and our dear country.

“I’m proud and honoured to have served our country, the Gambia.”

Adama Barrow, who won the December election, could not take oath of office in Gambia because of Jammeh’s refusal to hand over power.

He was sworn into office in The Gambian embassy in Senegal.

  5. He should have stepped down earlier with his head held up high, particularly when he conceded to Barrow. Love for Gambians indeed. Jammeh developed cold feet when most of his allies deserted him and he got scared of death.

    1. Xactly, his vice for 22years already left him, Army chief alredy declare allegiance to Adama. He is now a lone ranger, yet, what would his less than 2,500 soldiers do before ECOWAS troop? If he had left the stage when the ovation was loudest, it would have been a glorious decision. arrant nonsense.

  7. Jammeh climbed the highest mountain in Gambia, and saw the magnitude of the military strength coming to Jam him to Jambia. He quietly climbed down to shake hands with them.....someone can't play with them again?

  13. The lesson must have been instructive to Jammeh: the peaceful passing of power from the 44th (Obama) to 45th (Trump) President of the USA. Plus, of course, protecting his own skin in the game. Way to go ECOWAS, way to go African Union. Now, these African state despots must have a re-think whether they prefer a graceful/disgraceful exit bcos it's no longer business as usual. No-More-Sit-Tight syndrome by African leaders. By the way, Mugabe is still an open question. When can Africans expect a solution to this endemic problem? QED@atm
