ECOWAS Closely Monitoring The Gambia – Pres. Sirleaf 

MONROVIA, January 9 (LINA) - The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is closely monitoring the situation in The Gambia ahead of the planned inauguration of President-elect Adama Barrow later this month.

ECOWAS Chairperson and Liberian leader Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said sub-regional leaders were holding series of meetings to reach a decision on the situation to find solution to the political stalemate in The Gambia.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the statement on Sunday, January 7, when she addressed journalists at the Robert International Airport (RIA) upon her arrival from Ghana where she attended the inaugural ceremony of Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo.

The Liberian leader said ECOWAS Heads of State and Government are expected to meet shortly in Nigeria to reach a decision regarding the political crisis in The Gambia.

She told reporters, among other things, that the planned meeting will focus primarily on updates from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and former   Ghanaian President John Mahama, the two mediators involved with The Gambia’s situation.

President Sirleaf also noted that ECOWAS was awaiting The Gambia’s Supreme Court ruling on the matter on January 10.

President Sirleaf was met on arrival by several government officials, including Sylvester Grigsby, Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Coordinator of the Cabinet while President Sirleaf was away.
