Press Statement By: The ECOWAS Youth Council

The ECOWAS Youth Council ably led by Amb. ‘Seun Ologun William wishes to felicitate with the good people of  Gambia on the inauguration of their president, his Excellency Adama Barrow.

It’s noteworthy to state that it was a journey made tedious by the refusal of the former President Yahya Jammeh to handover power peacefully. Nevertheless the tenacity and desire of Gambians have brought them to this happy and memorable moment.

We will like to use this important occasion and opportunity to also congratulate the “Newest” president in the world, His Excellency President Adama Barrow a prosperous tenure.

We call on all Gambians, home and abroad to join hands in the task of rebuilding the Democratic institution. It’s also pertinent at this point to call on Gambians to unite to ensure the dream of a new, prosperous Gambia built on justice and equity is realised.

The ECOWAS Youth Council will continue to support the people of Gambia, particularly the youths in their quest for a great Gambia. We also stretch forward our hands of fellowship to his Excellency, President Adama Barrow in his effort to contribute to build a Gambia of West African dream by leading and showing the way and upholding the confidence the Gambian nation has placed on him.

Long Live Gambia, Long Live West Africa.
