Yahya Jammeh has finally surrendered and decided to leave Gambia following another round of mediation between him and some African leaders,
Jammeh had initially insisted that he will not leave the position of presidency in spite of the fact that he lost the presidential election to Adama Barrow.
Military troops from the Economic Community Of West African State had stationed in Senegal awaiting order to force Jammeh out of office but reports indicate he has decided to leave today, Friday, January 20 and is already preparing a statement.
According to Guinean officials, Jammeh is expected to move to Conakry after leaving Gambia.
Earlier, Jammeh pleaded for more time, according to BBC, despite the fact that his successor had been sworn-in to office on Thursday, January 19.
