His Ghanaian counterpart, who will also be leaving office soon, John Mahama had arrived earlier.
They are to meet with President, Yahya Jammeh, who just lost the presidential election. Shortly after Yahya lost, he conceded and congratulated Adama Barrow, but has now made a u-turn saying, he won’t be leaving office.
According to the statement, Buhari and the ECOWAS leaders will discuss the ensuing impasse in The Gambia with 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 however expected back in the country today.
