Gambia Crisis: Jammeh sticks To plan, ECOWAS Force Lurks

Yahya Jammeh of The Gambia is still in the country and holding himself out as President despite the expiration of his mandate after midnight of Wednesday on the 18th of January 2017.

Jammeh declared a 90-day state of emergency on Tuesday evening, a situation that makes the scheduled swearing-in of the president-elect, Adama Barrow, close to impossible at least on Gambian soil. Barrow's camp insist the investiture will take place someway somehow.

Reports making the rounds on social media claims that Jammeh's lawyer, Edward Anthony Gomez has jumped ship, as he has left the country to neighbouring Senegal where Adama Barrow is expected to be sworn in today at the Gambian embassy.
