Buhari, already in Banjul, The Gambian capital is set to impress this on The Gambian strong man, who has been in power for 22 years, after seizing it from former leader, Dauda Jawara in 1994.

The Nigerian leader, who arrived together with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia, who is the current Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS, and President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra-Leone, were received at the airport by Gambia's Vice-President, Isatou Njie-Saidy, according to a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.

The statement said: “The out-going President of Ghana, John Mahama, who had earlier arrived Banjul, will join the other West African leaders to meet President Jammeh at the CoCo Ocean Resort and Spa, Banjul.

“President Jammeh had earlier conceded defeat in the election, after a 22-year rule, but recanted a week later, asking for fresh polls to be conducted by a "god-fearing and independent electoral commission."

“President Buhari and the ECOWAS leaders will discuss the ensuing impasse in The Gambia with President Jammeh, and insist on the sanctity of the electoral process, and respect for the wishes of the people.

“They would also ask their host to respect the Constitution of his own country, and maintain the inviolability of an electoral process that had been concluded, and in which he had admitted defeat, and congratulated his main challenger.

“The leaders are also scheduled to meet the President-elect, Adama Barrow. President Buhari is expected back in Abuja later today.”
