The Gambia’s defeated President who refuses to leave office until forces come in on him has asked for a deadline extension. Yahya Jammeh begs to be given until 4PM Gambian time to State House on Friday. He will be forcefully removed by UN-backed forces. An earlier 12 noon deadline had passed as Presidents of Guinea and Mauritania arrived in the Gambia for a last-ditch talks aimed at convincing Yahya Jammeh to leave office or else be forced out militarily. Yahya Jammeh had repeatedly said anyone who wanted to remove him should do it militarily. Why is the meaning of his delay tactics? Only an hour will certainly unravel.
