Discussing the Yayah Jammeh conundrum - handing over to the newly elected president in the Gambiaby talkingafrica
The Yayah Jammeh conundrum - relinquish now or hold on and flee later! Which is it?
Well, congratulations to ECOWAS for a dogged determination to install the "peoples choice" for President in the Republic of the Gambia (or was it a desperate effort to make up for failures to get rid of other West African "bogarts"?) So, what next on the agenda, ECOWAS? If I may, I suggest two key things: 1. Declare your intention to remove those other "power hoggers" in office (Mahamadou Issoufou (Niger) - 6 years this year; Alpha Conde (Guinea) - 7 years this year; and , oh, Ernest Bai Koroma (Sierra Leone) - 10 years this year! 2. Perhaps a school to teach "how to remove "power hoggers" for the other REC's, perhaps starting with ECCAS, and a special session on Equatorial Guinea?
