Momar Njie Warns Jammeh Against Bid To Overturn Election Result

Momar Njie Warns Jammeh Against Bid To Overturn Election Result Yahya Jammeh
The Gambia Electoral Commission chairman, Alieu Momar Njie, has warned incumbent President, Yahya Jammeh, against his bid to overturn the election result.

Njie told the president that his U-turn after accepting defeat will not change the fact that he lost to Adama Barrow.

Njie said, “The election results were correct, nothing will change that. If it goes to court, we can prove every vote cast. The results are there for everyone to see.”

After conceding defeat in the just presidential election in the country, Jammeh late last week, rejected the outcome of the election and vowed to challenge his defeat in the Supreme Court.

He claimed that the poll was marred by irregularities and that many of his supporters were disenfranchised.

The 51-year-old Jammeh, who has ruled the West African nation for 22 years, congratulated Barrow  for his “clear victory” and praised the elections as “transparent” and “rig-proof.”

He was also quoted as saying that, “Allah is telling me my time is up,” and added he would move to his farm after leaving office in January.

Besides, only last week, the president was shown on state TV calling Mr Barrow to wish him well.

“You are the elected president of The Gambia, and I wish you all the best. I have no ill will,” he said at the time.
