Gambian President-elect Adama Barrow is due to be sworn in on today (19th), but it is becoming increasingly clear that the event may not come on.

He stated that he would sworn in at the country’s embassy in neighbouring Senegal, as regional forces massed at the border to force incumbent Yahya Jammeh to quit after his election defeat. But it was not clear how Barrow will travel to Gambia.

In messages posted on his social media accounts, Barrow said the inauguration was going to take place as scheduled on Thursday in the Senegalese capital, Dakar.

Gambia is currently under a 3 month (90 day) state of emergency imposed by President Yahya Jammeh after a legislative vote to that effect. But Foreign Affairs Minister of Nigeria, Geoffery Onyeama, has hinted that the ceremony could go ahead outside of the country but on Gambian territory.
