Senegal’s army spokesman said on Wednesday that its forces are at the Gambian border and will enter at midnight if the veteran president, Yahya Jammeh, refuses to relinquish power.
Jammeh, who lost a Dec. 1 decision to restriction pioneer Adama Barrow, said he would not venture down, refering to inconsistencies in the vote. His order closes at (midnight GMT).
“We are prepared and are anticipating the due date at midnight. On the off chance that no political arrangement is discovered, we will venture in,” said Colonel Abdou Ndiaye, representing the Senegalese armed force.
The Nigerian Air Force said it had conveyed to Senegal on the off chance that it was required. Nigeria is a piece of the West African coalition ECOWAS, which has debilitated Jammeh with authorizations or military intercession on the off chance that he doesn’t venture down.
