Gambian President Adama Barrow arrives for the swearing-in ceremony and the Gambia’s Independence Day in Bakau.

(JollofNews) – Gambia’s president Adama Barrow will arrive in Dakar, Senegal on Thursday for a three-day official visit.

During his stay in Dakar, President Barrow will hold discussion on bilateral and other issues with his Senegalese counterpart President Macky Sall before addressing the media at mid-day on the same day.

Mr Barrow, 52, who was elected in last December’s election, was also sworn-in as Gambia’s third president last month at the Independence Stadium, Bakau.

Barrow’s victory over ex-president Jammeh in December’s election is seen by foreign donors as a new chance for human rights and the rule of law to be better respected in the tiny west African nation.
