No: 20, 21 January 2017

We welcome the transfer of power to Adama Barrow, who was elected as President of The Gambia as a result of the elections held on 1st of December 2016. We appreciate the prudent stance shown by the Gambian people during this period which helped to prevent instability in the country.

The efforts of the mediation committee which is composed of regional leaders and established upon the initiative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) aiming to ensure transfer of power has set another concrete example for “finding African solutions for African problems”.
