The President-elect of Gambia, Adama Barrow, is alive contrary to rumours of his assassination on social media.

Multiple sources in Gambia confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that Mr. Barrow is alive.

Jeffery Smith, a journalist with Vanguard Africa, confirmed that Mr. Barrow was alive.

Another Gambian journalist, Demba Kandeh, also confirmed same to PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Barrow has remained in Gambia to ensure he is sworn in as president on January 19 after he defeated outgoing leader, Yahya Jammeh, in the December 1 election.

Mr. Jammeh, who initially conceded to his opponent, later recanted and has since vowed to stay on in office.

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently leading a West African, ECOWAS, mediation asking Mr. Jammeh to step down.

The Nigerian government on Wednesday said it still hoped to resolve the Gambian conflict peacefully after Mr. Jammeh accused ECOWAS of declaring war on Gambia by insisting that all options including military deployment were on the table to make Mr. Jammeh leave power.

    Nigeria who can not defeat boko haram want to send their soldiers on suicide mission

    • Otile

      Never mind, Nigeria is going to fight a propaganda warfare there. Already Yoruba lawyers and propagandists have infiltrated the Gambian Supreme Court. Soon they will be announcing imaginary assassinations, sabotage, interceptions and other frightful nefarious activities.

      I am glad Mr Barrow is there to speak for himself.

      Na wa o. But With due respect sir, if you registered 5 days ago and got paid 50k 5 days after, do you think that is a sustainable business? For how long do u think they can comfortably rub new members to pay old members? There’s an impending doomsday. We can all sense it.
