Gambia- Tabiye.com- The Gambia has formally sworn in its new elected President, Adama Barrow, in front of a crowd of thousands including African heads of state.
It was the second time he had taken the oath after his formal inauguration was delayed by the reluctance of his predecessor to leave office.
“This is a victory for democracy,” he told a full stadium of his countrymen near the capital Banjul.
“Few people would have thought that I’d be standing here today,” he said.
He told the crowd that Gambian people now had the power to control their own destiny and that he was going to free political prisoners and improve press freedom.
