Barrow, accompanied by his wife, was welcomed at the airport by Senegalese President Macky Sall.

Gambian President Adama Barrow who took office on February 18 after 22 years of iron-fisted rule by his predecessor Yahya Jammeh

According to the schedule previously revealed by the Senegalese presidential office, Barrow will have talks with his Senegalese counterpart, followed by a joint press conference.

Senegal played an active role in solving the political crisis in Gambia after the then incumbent president Yahya Jammeh refused to cede power to president-elect Barrow.

NAN reports that Adama was sworn in at The Gambia embassy in Senegal, as no fewer than 7,000 regional forces massed at the border to force incumbent Jammeh to quit after his election defeat.
