Government Addresses Claims of President Barrow’s Humiliation in Mali Preposterous

The Gambia Government through its spokesperson has made clarifications on the claims of President Adama Barrow’s humiliation in Mali Preposterous. In a press release issued and signed by the Ebrima G. Sankareh, the government’s spokesperson and Diaspora Adviser stated that “Ever since President Adama Barrow and a delegation of West African Statesmen returned from an ECOWAS Mediation Mission to Mali recently, erroneous claims emerged that the Gambian leader was terribly humiliated by his Malian colleague, interim President, Colonel Assimi Goïta.”

According to the press release, it stated that contrary to the claim trending across Social Media, “The Gambia Government wishes to clarify that it is a shameful fabrication by some enemies of progress determined to sabotage every success story under President Barrow’s visionary leadership”. 

The release also stated that while the misleading report alleges that President Barrow angered his Malian host by advising him to relinquish power for a peaceful transition to democratic civilian rule, President Barrow’s delegation never discussed transition as that was not their Mission to Mali.

That in fact, the military authorities in Mali had long assured ECOWAS, the African Union and the international community of their commitment to peaceful transition to democratic rule. 

The press release added that the high-powered delegation to Mali was tasked with negotiating an amicable resolution to the fate of some 49 detained Ivorian soldiers mistaken for mercenaries and the trip was a major success as three female officers have since been freed. 

It can be recalled that during the recently concluded UN General Assembly Meetings, member States of the ECOWAS Community convened an Extraordinary Summit on the margins of the UN Assembly, to specifically address the looming political situation in Guinea as well as the plight of the detained Ivorian soldiers in Mali. 

In reality, the release stated that President Barrow’s Mission to Mali was in fulfilment of that extraordinary session’s determination to find a lasting solution to the circumstances surrounding those 49 detained Ivorian soldiers and had nothing absolutely, to do with the purported military to civilian transition timetable erroneously reported. 

Crucially, President Barrow wishes to thank Colonel AssimiGoïta for the hospitality, finesse and general politeness with which he treated him and the entire delegation. President AdamaBarrow is specifically grateful to Colonel Goïta for his demonstrated kindness towards him, for his love for Gambia and Gambians.  During his sessions with President Barrow, the Malian leader revealed he has family links with The Gambia and intends to visit Gambia soon.” The release concluded.
