GAMBIAN INFORMATION MINISTER RESIGNS TO PROTEST JAMMEHS REFUSAL TO ACCEPT DEFEAT

Gambian Information Minister, Sheriff Bojang has resigned to protest President Yahya Jammeh’s refusal to accept defeat in last month’s presidential election.

Sheriff in a statement said efforts to contest the results were “an attempt to subvert the express will” of the Gambian people.

The UN Security Council has called on President Jammeh to step down.

He initially accepted that opposition leader Adama Barrow won the election, but then reversed his decision, citing electoral “abnormalities”.
