Two days to the inauguration of President-elect, Adama Barrow, Nigerian and other West African countries are preparing a joint force to intervene militarily in Gambia if President Yahya Jammeh does not hand over power, a Nigerian military source said on Tuesday.
This is coming as three more ministers resigned from Jammeh’s government.
Sources said Nigeria has since mobilised 800 troops for the assignment.
“A decision has been taken that he will not remain president of Gambia at the expiration of his tenure,” the source said, referring to Jammeh.
Ministers of finance, foreign affairs and trade and environment tendered their resignation letters, according to ministry sources and state television.
Jammeh lost a Dec. 1 vote to president-elect Adama Barrow who is due to be sworn in on Thursday. Jammeh conceded defeat but now says he will not step down.
