Finally President Adama Barrow Returns Home

According to BBC & Naij, President Barrow’s plane touched down at Banjul airport where jubilant crowds waited to welcome him. After landing, he tweeted: “I’m finally home #Gambia.”

Mr Barrow, who has been in neighbouring Senegal, won elections in December.
However a handover was stalled when Mr Jammeh, Gambia’s president of 22 years, refused to step aside.
He left for exile at the weekend after mediation by regional leaders and the threat of military intervention.
Earlier, Mr Barrow, 51, said he expected a “big, big welcome” when he arrived back in Banjul.
He told the International Business Times UK: “I think it will be the biggest in the history of our country.”
He added that he was “very excited” after the “very difficult transition”.
The president is being accompanied by the UN envoy for West Africa, Mohamed ibn Chambas. He has said the UN will help uphold security in The Gambia.
