Gambia’s new president has said that Yahya Jammeh, who ruled the country for 22 years and refused to step down after losing the recent election, has finally “agreed to leave”.
Writing on Twitter on Friday, Adama Barrow said Jammeh would also leave the country.
“I would like to inform you that Yahya Jammeh has agreed to step down. He is scheduled to depart Gambia today. #NewGambia,” he tweeted.
