Gambian President, Adama Barrow To Be Officially Inaugurated Today

Gambian president, Adama Barrow will be
officially sworn in at the Independence Stadium in the capital, Banjul.
The inauguration will be tied with the Gambia’s 52nd Independence Day
celebration.

Reports also indicate that Presidents from about 20
African countries are expected to grace the event. While US Department
of State, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda
Thomas-Greenfield will also be at the event.

However, Adama Barrow took his first oath of office in Dakar, at the
Gambian embassy in Senegal. He was sworn-in by the head of The Gambian
bar association. This second oath will be administered by the new Chief
Justice, Justice Hassan Jallow.

His inability to take oath in Bajul after winning December 2016 polls
was due to the refusal of former leader, Yahya Jammeh, to accept his
poll loss.
