Meanwhile, a journalist with the Standard Newspaper in Gambia, Sekous Kale earlier told Accra-based Citi FM that “pursuant to the Gambia’s constitution, Adama’s inauguration cannot be put to a halt.”
“Adama will be inaugurated but what we don’t know is whether Adama will be inaugurated at the independence stadium as planned,” he added.
