President Buhari to join Gambia mediation talks




Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari will travel to Gambia on Tuesday as part of a high-level delegation trying to get Yahya Jammeh, Gambia's leader of the last 22 years, to accept his defeat in this month's election, a Nigerian government source said.


Just last year, Muhammadu Buhari unseated Nigeria's incumbent president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in the 2015 general elections.

Goodluck's defeat and laudable peaceful transfer of power appears to have become a turning point in the method of West African politics.

It marked the first time in the history of Nigeria that an incumbent president lost to an opposition candidate in a general election.

General Buhari was sworn in on 29 May 2015.
