Gambia’s parliament extends Yahya’s tenure by 90 days

Gambia’s parliament extends Yahya’s tenure by 90 days

Published by Family Writers

The Gambia’s parliament has extended President Yahya Jammeh’s term, which is due to end on Thursday following his defeat in elections, by 90 days. It also approved his decision to declare a 90-day state of emergency in the tiny West African state.

Regional leaders have threatened to use military force to oust Mr Jammeh if he refuses to hand power to President-elect Adama Barrow on Thursday. Thousands of UK and Dutch tourists are being evacuated from The Gambia. The country is popular with European holidaymakers because of its beaches. The Gambia was plunged into crisis after Mr Jammeh rejected Mr Barrow’s shock victory in the 1 December election.

Regional leaders have been unsuccessfully trying to persuade him to step down. Nigeria led Buhari govermnet has deployed a warship to put further pressure on Mr Jammeh to step down. Regional bloc Ecowas, the Economic Community of West African States, has prepared a Senegal-led force but maintains that military intervention would be a last resort. In his televised announcement on Tuesday, Mr Jammeh said “any acts of disobedience to the laws of The Gambia, incitement of violence and acts intended to disturb public order and peace” were banned under the state of emergency.

He said security forces were instructed to “maintain absolute peace, law and order”. The parliament passed a motion condemning what it called the “unlawful and malicious interference” of the African Union and neighbouring Senegal in The Gambia’s affairs.

  2. LISTEN LET ME TELL YOU HOW I BECAME RICH IN LIFE Hello my name
    is harry, I was once a trader, I was into electronics and my
    business wasn’t moving the I expected to be. And I was
    bankrupt and my business fold-off. At that point I was
    unable to feed and pay my bills, I was devastated and
    confused, I was checking building sites to see if I could get a
    job, but non worked. On my way home I ran into my old
    school friend who offered me a ride to my house. He gave
    me his house address and asked me to see him. So the next
    day (Saturday 5th of June 2014) I went to his house, seeing
    him, he smiled and asked me to sit down, he asked if I have
    eating that morning, he asked his wife to bring me some
    food. After eating, he asked “IF I WAS COMFORTABLE WITH
    MY PRESENT PREDICAMENT”. Without wasting time, “I SAID
    NO” He turned back at me and asked “IF I AM READY TO
    JOIN THE BROTHERHOOD CALL ILLUMINATI” ? He told me
    not to give him an Automatic answer, that I should wait for
    him to freshen up that we are both going to a club, that I
    should give him an answer when we comes back later in the
    day. We went and we enjoyed ourselves, much fun and all.
    After we’ve woken up in the morning, freshen up and ate, HE
    ASKED ME TO SIT AND GIVE ANSWER TO HIM ON THE
    QUESTION HE ASKED ME YESTERDAY. And I told him yes
    that I will love to to join the Brotherhood Illuminati. So he
    told me to be prepared, that we were going to visit a prophet
    called “PARKA” . He told me that the prophet is the one in-
    charge of ILLUMINATI INITIATION in AFRICA as a continent.
    So when we got there, PROPHET—PARKA took me to the
    TEMPLE and performed the INITIATION RITES. He said I was
    very lucky that He just bought some initiation stuffs a day
    before we came, I was very happy... GUESS WHAT!!! The
    following week, after I have received my ILLUMINATI
    CERTIFICATE, I was given all the necessary “ILLUMINATI”
    items, equipments and facilities and a total SUM of
    $20,000,000 The following month, I called to the temple
    where the Baphoment was, and I was given a visa to travel
    around the world and connect me with foreign Business Men.
    This was how I became RICH, FAMOUS AND CONNECTED in
    life. This was how the mask of shame, disgrace and poverty
    was turned off from my life; and wear in me a garment of
    honor, respect and long-life. I keep thanking my friend for
    his good heart, love and care. And also prophet parka for not
    rejecting me.My good people, poverty and shame is a very
    bad thing to come across. SO IF YOU WANT OR WISH TO BE
    RICH, CALL harrysmith on +2349036616161 or email [email protected] or whatsap +2349036616161
