Some West African leaders are visiting Gambia today to try to dissuade President Yahya Jammeh from rejecting the country’s election results. Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the current chair of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), leads the delegation that includes Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, Sierra Leone leader Ernest Bai Koroma, and the outgoing president of Ghana, John Mahama.
“We will be asking President Jammeh to respect his country’s Constitution and to maintain the inviolability of the electoral process,” Buhari posted on Twitter.
