Mahama flies to Abuja for ECOWAS meeting

President John Dramani Mahama is in Nigeria's capital of Abuja for an ECOWAS heads of state meeting.

The 3-day meeting will see African leaders convince defeated Gambian President Yahya Jammeh to concede defeat after several attempts by four leaders from Anglophone countries to persuade him on the matter failed.

Yahya Jammeh's ruling party challenged his defeat in a December 1 election at the Supreme Court on Tuesday as West African leaders failed to reach a deal that would see him accept the result and end a deepening political crisis.

The ECOWAS summit will be Mahama's last as he prepares to handover power to president-elect,Nana Akufo-Addo come January 7 next year.
