The ECOWAS ambassador to The Gambia Vabah Gayflo said on Thursday that the regional body is continuing to monitor the political environment in the Gambia including the conducts of political parties, citizenry and the reaction of the government.
“We are concerned with recent happenings and we have been consulting with the headquarters and we are watching. We are advised to monitor the process,” she said.
She applauded the timely interventions by the government and law enforcement units to accommodate the recent political fracas that occurred at the home village of President Adama Barrow in the Upper River Region of the country.
Gayflo said her office will commence meeting with the political parties next week to ensure the conflict do not go out of hand.
Last week, the supporters of the former ruling APRC party of Yahya Jammeh were allegedly attacked by the coalition supporters at President Barrow’s home village as well as in Busumbala in the West Coast Region. The attack left many injured. Enditem
