Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh declares a State of Emergency


Just days before his tenure ends, #Gambia president #Yahya #Jammeh declares a state of emergency. According to documents released by the National assembly of The Gambia, the state of public emergency will last from January 17 to April 17 2017. 
This resolution came into effect as Ecowas regional bloc plans a military intervention as a last resort if the incumbent president refuses to hand over power to president-elect Adama Barrow.
