ECOWAS is preparing for a combat action following President Yahaya Jammeh’s refusal to hand over power to Adama Barrow.
The instability in the Gambia continues to divide opinion over whether to use diplomacy to lure him out of power or subject him to brute force.
Founder of the Jesus Generation Ministries, Rt Rev Dr. Nana Anyani-Boadum, has urged West African leaders to refrain from shedding blood in the removal of Yahaya Jammeh from office.
In an interview with Peacefmonline.com, the renowned preacher noted that history has taught Jammeh not to place his faith in West African leaders.
