The National Assembly of the Gambia on Wednesday adopted a resolution to allow President Yahya Jammeh to stay in power for three more months, starting from Wednesday.

Mr. Jammeh, who has ruled The Gambia for 22 years, initially conceded defeat and acknowledged opponent Adama Barrow as the winner of elections in December, before he later recanted.
On Tuesday, Jammeh had declared a 90-day state of emergency just days before he was due to step down.
He rejected the result as flawed and lodged a complaint with the country’s Supreme Court.
The ECOWAS is bracing for military action midnight Wednesday as the regional bloc insists on enforcement of results of December election.
