President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met behind closed doors with Gambia’s President Adama Barrow at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

DAILY NIGERIAN reports Barrow is visiting Nigeria for the third time since his inauguration as Gambian President on Feb. 19, 2017.

The 53-year-old Gambian president, who was received by the Nigerian leader at the fore court of the presidential villa at about 3.55p.m, was last in Nigeria in Aug, 2018.

It was also reported that the two leaders immediately went into bilateral talks.

Mr Buhari played a major role in ensuring smooth democratic transition in The Gambia when the former Gambian President Yahya Jammeh refused to step aside.

NAN reports that three persons were reported killed in Jan. 2020 at the Gambian capital Banjul during a violent protest demanding for the Gambian president to honour his pledge of single term tenure.
