[ Masterweb Reports ] - Long-time ruler of the Gambia Yahya Jammeh has been given until midday Friday to cede the presidency to Adama Barrow, who won last month's presidential election.Military forces from regional states, unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council, entered the country on Thursday to exert pressure on Jammeh to hand power to Barrow.
 
Barrow was sworn in as the third president of the Gambia in the country's embassy in Senegal this week.
 
"This is a victory of the Gambian nation. Our flag will now fly high among those of the most-democratic nations of the world," said 51-year-old Barrow during his inauguration which officially ended Jammeh's 22-year rule.
 
He called for loyalty from the country’s armed forces.
 
Jammeh’s presidential term expired at midnight Wednesday. However, he has rejected the vote results under the pretense of election irregularities.
 
Initially Jammeh conceded defeat, before challenging the result in the courts.
 
Meanwhile, international pressure is mounting with foreign forces entering the country and demanding his removal.
 
"We have suspended operations and given him an ultimatum," said Marcel Alain de Souza, head of the 15-nation Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
 
"If by midday, he doesn't agree to leave The Gambia... we really will intervene militarily," he said.
 
The UN Security Council unanimously backed west African states’ efforts to force Jammeh to quit.
 
A Senegalese army officer told media that troops from Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Togo and Mali including "land, air and sea" forces crossed into the Gambia.
 
The Gambia's army chief Ousman Badjie has said he would not order his men to fight the internationally-backed troops sent to intervene in the country’s elections.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - African forces have suspended a military operation to force The Gambia's leader Yahya Jammeh to hand over power in favour of final talks to convince him to leave the country, the president of Ecowas said. Talks will be led by Guinean president Alpha Condé in Banjul on Friday (Jan 20) morning, said Mr Marcel Alain de Souza, the head of the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas).
 
"If by midday, he doesn't agree to leave The Gambia under the banner of President Condé, we really will intervene militarily," he added.
 
The political standoff in Gambia intensified on Thursday as foreign troops crossed the border with orders to dislodge the repressive leader who has refused to step down after losing a presidential election last month.
 
Mr Jammeh seized power in a coup 22 years ago and once said he could rule for 1 billion years. But on Thursday, the Senegalese military headed toward the capital of Gambia, Banjul, where Mr Jammeh has been holed up in the state house, insisting that his rule is still valid.
 

Mr Jammeh has warned that he will fight back against any foreign military intervention.

 
At least 26,000 Gambians, worried about violence, have fled the country, the United Nations says, and several senior officials in Mr Jammeh's government have resigned in protest or have left the nation as well.
 
As the invasion began, the winner of the election, Mr Adama Barrow, was being sworn into office in a brief ceremony about 240km outside of Gambia. The inauguration took place in a nondescript room at the Gambian Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, because Mr Barrow has so little control over his country that he did not go home for the funeral of his son, who had been killed by a dog over the weekend.
 
Mr Barrow's team ultimately decided that the embassy in Dakar was the closest they could safely get to Gambian soil to start the new administration. Plans for an elaborate ceremony in a soccer stadium in Gambia's capital had to be scrapped amid the standoff.
 
"It's not necessarily the kind of ceremony to be jubilant about, but the situation is dangerous," said Mr Halif Sallah, a spokesman for Mr Barrow.
 
But late on Thursday it appeared the situation could still be resolved without a fight. State television broadcast news that the presidents of Liberia, Mauritania and Guinea would arrive on Friday to negotiate a peaceful resolution. A Senegalese military official said troops would stand by for talks to resume.
 
During the inauguration in Senegal, Mr Barrow arrived to enthusiastic whoops from hundreds of supporters and emerged from a motorcade beaming in an all-white outfit. He was sworn in just before 5pm, his hand on a Quran, pledging to serve his country "without fear or failure".
 
Several people who had gathered outside to watch on a large television screen shouted, "No more dictatorship!"
 
In a brief speech, the soft-spoken Mr Barrow called on the Gambian security forces to pledge their loyalty to him, asking that the military stay in their barracks.
 
"We are one Gambia, one people," he said.
 
The Gambia has suffered high unemployment and political repression for years under Mr Jammeh, with many citizens abandoning the country to risk perilous and often deadly journeys to Europe by sea.
 
Minutes after Mr Barrow was sworn in, celebrations erupted across The Gambia, with thousands gathering in some areas.
 
Mr Lamin Demba, a welder, said he felt like a free man. Joining others in celebration in front of his welding shop with piles of metal, he took out his phone and called a relative in Italy.
 
"Come back home boy, we are free now," he shouted into the phone. "Now Gambia is free."
 
But while Mr Barrow has popular support in The Gambia, it has not been enough to dislodge the erratic Mr Jammeh. After initially accepting defeat in the election, he suddenly cited voting irregularities and called for a new vote.
 
"He is still the president," said Mr Seedy Njie, The Gambia's minister of information, communication and technology. "So, yes, he is here."
 
This week, The Gambia's Parliament voted to extend Mr Jammeh's term for three months, though international officials denounced the move and many analysts consider it unconstitutional.
 
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on Thursday supporting the efforts of the Economic Community of West African States to ensure a peaceful transfer of power to Barrow.
 
The resolution, presented by Senegal, which has a rotating seat on the council, offers "its full support to the Ecowas in its commitment to ensure by political means first the respect of the will of the people of The Gambia" in the election that ousted Mr Jammeh from office.
 
The speed with which the council has taken action shows how little support Mr Jammeh has among world powers. He has overseen a legacy of human rights abuses, including imprisoning opponents and declaring that gay people should be beheaded. He has claimed to have the ability to cure AIDS with little more than an herbal concoction.
 
Mr Barrow, by contrast, is an unassuming real estate agent who fell into the candidate's position after Mr Jammeh jailed other opposition party members. He left the country last week to meet with other West African leaders to discuss how to resolve the matter of taking over the presidency. Fearing for his safety at home, he wound up in Senegal, which surrounds The Gambia on three sides and has a huge stake in The Gambia's stability.
 
Mr Jammeh's circle of friends has been shrinking considerably in recent days. The African Union said it would fail to recognise him as president as of Thursday. The presidents of Liberia and Mauritania met with him to urge him to step down, to no avail. His chief spokesman and longtime mouthpiece fled the country. Many of his ministers resigned.
 
Mr Jammeh has tried numerous channels to cling to power. He appealed to the Supreme Court, but because he had fired most of the judges and failed to replace them, a full panel could not be assembled in time to hear his case.
 
This week, Mr Jammeh declared a state of emergency in the country. He shut three independent radio stations, and his officers arrested people selling #GambiaHasDecided T-shirts.
 
For now, it appears members of the security forces are staying loyal to him. But with Mr Jammeh lacking a broad support base, his ability to provide for supporters who have lived off his good graces for years will be challenged.
 
"He has nothing left, really," said Mr Sallah, Mr Barrow's spokesman. "In the end, I don't see how he can stay."
 
Ms Mariam Sakho, a Gambian waitress in Banjul, said she was confident Mr Jammeh would step down, especially now that many of his ministers were deserting him.
 
"Yesterday, my boss said I should not come to work because it is not safe," she said. "But for me, I believe nothing will happen, so I told him I will come. Everybody is tired with Yahya Jammeh; I believe he will go."
 
The manager in the hotel restaurant where Ms Sakho works, Mr Lamine Bojang, said that despite the uncertainty over Gambia's future, the possibility of a war had never crossed his mind. He argued that Mr Jammeh was just "testing the waters" and would give up at the last minute.
 
"Gambians are very peaceful people," he said. "This is a small country. Imagine if we fight and a thousand people die. There will be no one to govern. Even Jammeh will not like to rule a hundred people."
 
People stayed glued to radios for news, while many Barrow supporters celebrated openly.
 
"Nobody can stop me," said Mr Fatou Njie, a Barrow supporter. "It is my right." (AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, NYTIMES)

[ Masterweb Reports ] - Mr Barrow was sworn in as President in exile on Thursday afternoon, in the country’s embassy in neighbouring Senegal, while incumbent Yahya Jammeh continues to cling on to power. The Security Council resolution invited the formidable west African regional bloc to ensure Mr Barrow’s election victory was respected, but a last-minute amendment urged the use of “political means first”.

 

Yet minutes after the resolution had passed, Senegalese Colonel Abdou Ndiaye issued a brief statement to news agencies declaring: “We have entered Gambia.”
 
Mr Barrow’s inauguration ceremony was held in a small conference room at the Dakar embassy, and attended by dignitaries including the President of the Commission from the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas).
 
The bloc had threatened to invade The Gambia and forcefully eject Mr Jammeh if he did not step aside peacefully, giving a deadline of midnight on Wednesday. Nigerian gunboats and Senegalese troops assembled on the Gambian border.
 
Introducing the new President Barrow on Thursday afternoon, an official declared that “after 22 years of a gruelling dictatorship, the Gambian people have opted for change”.
 
Mr Barrow addressed the audience of delegates, saying: “This is victory of the Gambian nation. Our national flag will now fly high among the other democratic nations of the world.
 
"This is a day no Gambian will ever forget.
 
The hastily-arranged ceremony was also an opportunity for the international community to express support for Mr Barrow, their chosen candidate. An Ecowas official said: “The Ecowas Commission, African Union and United Nations congratulate his excellency Adama Barrow, President of the republic of The Gambia, as he is sworn in following his victory at the presidential election on 1 December 2016.
 
“The Ecowas Commision, AU and UN equally congratulate the people of The Gambia who have demonstrated patience, discipline, maturity and resolve to express their popular will at the election and during the post-election crisis.”
 
Mr Barrow convincingly won the December election, appearing to bring an end to the more than two decades-long rule of Mr Jammeh, who came to power in a coup in 1994.
 
Mr Jammeh initially conceded defeat, sparking celebrations across west Africa. But he then changed his mind and said he would not accept the results, saying the election was marred by irregularities. 
 
Botswana announced it no longer recognised Mr Jammeh as The Gambia’s President. It said his refusal to give up power “undermines the ongoing efforts to consolidate democracy and good governance” in The Gambia and in Africa in general. 
 
The streets of Banjul, the Gambian capital, were quiet on Thursday, according to reporters who remained in the city, with few cars and scattered groups of men gathered on roadsides. Shops were closed and petrol was in short supply.
 
Most tourists and thousands of Gambians have fled the country, including some former cabinet members who resigned in recent days.
 
Among them were thousands of British holiday-makers, who described a “chaotic” scramble to get on flights out of Africa upon their arrival back in the UK.
 
Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Secretary, was among the international voices calling for Mr Jammeh to respect the result of the election.
 
Mr Johnson said: “It is vital that former president Jammeh now stands aside to allow an orderly transition.”
 
He praised African organisations which are working to ensure “the democratic wishes of the Gambian people will be respected”, stating that the 1 December elections had been free and fair. (ABC)

[ Masterweb Reports: Enna Godwin reports ] - In an effort to fish-out ghost pensioners as well as to ensure transparency in the pension administration, the Nasarawa State Pension Bureau has said that it would begin biometric Data Capturing of all pensioners in the state.
 
The state Director General of the Bureau, Alhaji Husseni Oseze plans were underway to invite Singaporean specialists to installed modern technological facilities that would track every transaction and movement of pensioners files in the state.
 
Alhaji Oseze was optimistic that with the new system to be introduced, the era of corruption and embezzlement in the system was over.
 
He said, aside from the fluctuating pension profile as well as the fraudulent activities in the system, there was no exact figure of what goes to the pensioners coffers monthly.
 
 According to the pension DG   “In fact, for the purpose of those people who were here before, records were not kept. Files were not kept properly they way they should. And the origin of records is the files, how do they pay pensioners? Everything was just scattered. There is no proper arrangement.
 
“So, I went first to informed the Governor of the situation. When the Governor came here he was disturbed for what he met here, there and then he gave an instance directive that I should lias with Commissioner of Land and Survey to maybe computerize the whole system for us to meet the taste of time. To me the taste of what we have in other state and nation as a pension organisation, and I was glad for that. He said the Land and Survey complaint the same thing previously, and if I see how they now maintain it, is super.
 
“So, I went and he took me round almost every section in that ministry. What they did there is in such a way that any transaction done record gets into the system to the executive and even the government house will have a record. So, the issue of fraud will not even come in. Even if you are paying one kobo the Governor will be aware. In the ministry, you discover that they have code on each and every file. That will track the movement of each transaction of a file. That is the system I want here, and I have succeeded in doing that.
 
“The Land and Survey invited the Singaporean that sold the system and installed it to them, and they invited them to visit us and have discussion with them, taking them round to commence installation. They are in town purposely for us. Is that not an achievement? Is that not the system that will put this place in order and in right track? Is it not the system that would stop corruption and embezzlement? It is something you can’t temper with it." He said.

[ Masterweb Reports: SKC Ogbonnia reports ] - President Buhari’s new policy on whistle-blowing is revolutionary. Its goal is to broaden the attack on corruption by encouraging the general public to expose corrupt practices. The government will in turn reward those whose revelations result in recovery of funds or assets. The mere fact that the corrupt arm of the Nigerian Senate is already angling to oppose the initiative is a whistling indication that the policy is geared towards the general good.
 
But there is a critical problem beyond any Senate shenanigan.
 
The seemingly lack of transparency on the current anti-graft war remains a tottering can of worms. For starters, President Buhari embraced a unique kind of plea bargain, whereby corrupt individuals could secretly return looted funds or other assets. It was believed, and understandably so, that such compromise was the most expeditious way to recover the funds needed to address immediate national needs, especially considering that the president inherited a hopeless treasury as well as a receding economy. Plus, remember, exhausting the standard legal process cannot be a prudent option in a country where the courts are notorious for interminable delays of corrupt cases.
 
Sadly, the pattern of secret arrangements has led to mounting charges of selective justice or what have you. Not surprisingly, it is already casting a shadow over the new policy on whistle-blowing. In fact, there is a palpable confusion on where to begin and how the whole exercise will end.
 
Tracing corrupt proceeds among Nigerians, of course, is not a tall order. For corruption in the country is endemic, with its leaders never lacking in folly, always flaunting phony affluence every chance they get. Moreover, the corrupt proceeds are brazenly displayed across the globe in the form of overnight huge bank accounts, private jets, exotic cars and mansions—starting from the villages, urban areas, to foreign enclaves. These are not hidden at all. Yet, even if the masses know where to begin in the whistle-blowing effort, they may still feel reluctant to do so.
 
According to a statement from the Ministry of Finance, to be considered, a whistle-blower is required to “provide specific and fact based information such as what occurred, amount involved, who was involved and dates of occurrence.”  The whistle-blower “must have provided the government with information it does not already have and could not otherwise obtain from any other publicly available source to the government” It adds that false or misleading information “will be referred to the enforcement agents for investigation and possible prosecution.”
 
Please grant me the indulgence and carefully go through the above paragraph one more time.
 
You might have just learnt, as I did, that the requirements are complex and call for a great deal of effort as well as risk on the part of the whistle-blower, which is quite in order. The rigorous demand can essentially dissuade mindless peddlers and hearsays. But such complexity equally begs the following questions:
 
First and foremost, since the programme lacks in transparency, why and how would the potential whistle-blowers not feel used and dumped once they submit a petition only to be advised that the information so provided is already available to the government?  Second, what are the chances that the lack of transparency will not even engender another form of corruption in the programme with insiders trading off lucrative tip-offs to their cronies as usual? Thirdly, why should the secret pattern not worsen the situation by heightening the charges of selective justice and double looting currently dogging the anti-graft scheme?
 
The answer to these questions is simple. President Muhammadu Buhari should first do the needful and fulfill, without further delay, his promise to make public the specific details of the rich and famous who looted our country dry. If the war against corruption is to endure, the masses deserve to be kept abreast of the present or future leaders involved the assets in question, collaborators, and consequences, if any. These expectations are in line with Nigeria’s Freedom of Information Act and the Open Government Partnership (OGP) which the country signed unto not long ago.
 
In a similar vein, the team on whistle-blowing should constantly update their web portal with a comprehensive list of all cases under review, whether alleged or proven. The data ought to show the date and time the documentary evidence was entered, time dispensed, and nature of the outcome. After all, there are consequences for false information, and any accused person in Nigeria is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Moreover, Nigeria must not continue to bestow special treatment to the politically exposed persons accused of corruption while the rights of the ordinary citizens are trampled upon everyday without restraints.  
 
The defense commonly offered by the administration for the undue leniency is that publishing the names of alleged looters may jeopardize investigations or the special plea arrangements. But the excuse is pure baloney. If shielding alleged looters is truly a panacea for corruption, it is profoundly obvious that we did not start on time. As for plea bargain, the idea is ultimately cost-efficient, but it is typically for reduced sentences. It must not include the current habit of hiding thieves or allowing those who forfeit a portion of their stolen assets to go scot-free. 
 
It can be convenient to shift the blame to the judiciary or the lack of manpower needed to embark on a comprehensive approach to whistle-blowing. But we must resist the temptation of continuing to brandish such banal excuses as solutions. Instead, it has become critical to realize that being able to overcome obstacles is where true leadership comes in. President Buhari should, therefore, persevere and find ways to influence through the institutional frameworks essential for an effective anti-corruption war.
 
A compelling step is to complement the whistle-blowing programme by establishing the special courts needed to expedite corrupt cases. The anti-graft agency can follow by recruiting and training tens of thousands of jobless graduates adequate to wage a full-scale offensive combing from the 774 local governments upward. After all, the corrupt proceeds have been so overwhelming for the agency that many visible ill-gotten assets, such as the shady castles located in the various villages, are ironically ignored. Besides, apart from immediate job opportunities, any serious war against corruption in Nigeria not only pays for itself but can even compete as a top revenue generator for awhile.
 
Overall, the whistle-blowing initiative deserves every commendation. At the same time, even as the inherent plan to conceal the details of the corrupt elements may appear tenable short-time, it is counterproductive long-term. In short, the prevailing kid-glove approach is already beginning to create the false impression that corruption is suddenly insoluble in Nigeria thereby inadvertently aiding and abetting the crime itself. True.

[ Masterweb Reports: Evelyn Joe reports ] - Dear Readers; This is an unfolding saga. At this hour, after he  shut down four radio stations, declared a 90-day state of emergency,  had the parliament approve a three-month term elongation  while his cabinet ministers are deserting him,  Yahya Jammeh's fueled plane is at the middle of the tarmac in Banjul, the capital. His wife and children already left the country. Why the plane is at that position thickens the tension.
 

According to reports, his South African pilot has been instructed to be on standby amid the political tension and people fleeing from the country. An article indicates Jammeh is recruiting mercenaries.
 
Jammeh, who took power in a coup in 1994, is notorious for his belligerent, bizarre, and sometimes colorful,  behavior.  In May 2016, he told Jeune Afrique, a magazine published in France,  that then UN Secretary General "Ban Ki-moon and Amnesty  International can "go to hell", after they called for an investigation into the death of Gambian opposition leader Solo Sadeng while in prison. "Who are they to ask that?" he demanded.

He claims to have discovered the herbal  cure for HIV/AIDS. Mr Jammeh often replies to international critics with volleys of anti-colonial retorts. In 2013, he abruptly pulled The Gambia out of the Commonwealth, denouncing it as a "neo-colonial institution". He has lashed out at Britain, saying it did nothing for Gambia in 300 years of colonialism, except "to tell us how to sing Baa Black Sheep and God Save the Queen." While at it, he is not without some admirers of the rhetoric.
 
The Gambia's President-elect, Adama Barrow, is in Senegal at the request of ECOWAS for security reasons.

 On Wednesday, Jan 18, 2017, he said his countrymen and women are at the brink of making another world history on Thursday, after defeating Yahya Jammeh in the December 1election.

"We made history on the first day of December. Our future starts tomorrow", he said in a tweet on Wednesday morning. "We made history on the first day of December. Our future starts tomorrow. #Gambia " he said on his twitter handle, @adama_barrow.    

Normally, no military will unfold its plans ahead of an operation. However, military analysts have said that the open deployment of troops by ECOMOG  is indicative of the seriousness to enforce the constitution of The Gambia if Jammeh refuses to step down after his term expires at midnight.  

The Economic Community of West African States Monitoring Group (ECOMOG) is a multilateral armed force established by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). 
 Also, reports from The Gambia said the inauguration of President-elect Adama Barrow will go ahead tomorrow in line with the constitution at the independent stadium in Banjul. He will be escorted by security forces from ECOMOG who are on standby at the Senegalese border and will move into The Gambia by midnight.

Other speculations hold that it is possible for the President-elect to be sworn-in at The Gambia's Embassy in Dakar, Senegal.

Stay tuned.
