PARIS, DECEMBER 13, 2016: (DGW) President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria together with other West African leaders who departed for Banjul to hold talks with President Jammeh for a handover of power were on Tuesday humiliated as no deal was reportedly reached to make him rescind his decision, DailyGlobeWatch reliably gathered.
The mediation delegation to The Islamic Republic of Gambia on behalf of the West African ECOWAS bloc failed to end the looming political crisis in the West African state as President Yayah Jammeh reportedly stood his ground calling for fresh poll alleging that the previous one was marred by gross irregularities.
"It is not time for a deal. It is not something that can happen in one day. It is something we have to work on," Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, a Nobel peace laureate said after a round of meetings that included talks with incumbent president Yahya Jammeh and president-elect Adama Barrow.
A source privy to the talks revealed exclusively to our reporter that ''Buhari ought to have put his house in order before coming to the Gambia calling to mind the irregularities that trailed 2015 federal elections in Nigeria that brought him to power.
His words: President Buhari as one of the mediators annoys us, Gambia is not Nigeria, we have always conducted elections in our country devoid of irregularities. We are not unaware of the huge electoral fraud in Nigeria on whose back he rode to power, let him put his house in order before teaching us to suck eggs.''
