The United States government has strongly condemned dictator Yahya Jammeh’s desperate attempts to hijack President Adama Barrow’s electoral victory, Freedom Radio Gambia can reveal. The Obama administration also accuses dictator Jammeh of trying to remain in power illegitimately by annulling the results of the country’s just ended Presidential elections.
Jammeh’s action said the US government, is not only reprehensible, but unacceptable to say the least. Hence, the Kanilai monster was urged to ensure a smooth transition period than trying to undermine a credible electoral process which declared Barrow as the winner of the polls.
“This action is a reprehensible and unacceptable breach of faith with the people of The Gambia and an egregious attempt to undermine a credible election process and remain in power illegitimately,” Mark Toner, deputy spokesman at the U.S. Department of State said in a statement issued today.
“We call on President Jammeh, who accepted the elections results on December 2nd to carry out orderly transition of power to President elect Barrow in accordance with the Gambian constitution. We call upon all institutions in the Gambia, including the elected leadership, the armed forces, the religious leaders, political parties and civil society organizations to reject violence and peacefully the will of the people that was expressed clearly through the ballot box. The people have spoken and it is time for Gambians to come together to ensure a peaceful transition to President elect Barrow,” said Mr. Toner.
