Aji Jagne

Why should he escape...? If he ever sets foot in Gambia again, we shall take him to the ICC.feedback

Lamine Ceesy

The ECOMOG (West African force) should have come in without his agreement. Now he's going to escape with all his gold. We need the money back or there's no justice. We want him to go to court.feedback

Mai Ahmad Fatty

The Gambia is in financial distress. The coffers are virtually empty. That is a state of fact. It has been confirmed by technicians in the ministry of finance and the Central Bank of the Gambia. Officials "regret the situation.feedback

It is not yet confirmed information, but reliable sources say he'll be leaving today. We believe he'll go to Guinea, but we are yet to confirm 100 percent, but that's what we believe.feedback

Adama Barrow

We aren't talking about prosecution here, we are talking about getting a truth and reconciliation commission. Before you can act, you have to get the truth, to get the facts together.feedback

Adama Barrow

I wish to congratulate all of you and welcome you to the new Gambia.feedback

Marcel de Souza

It's out of the question that he stays in place. ... We propose that he leaves in an honourable manner and with respect.feedback

Maggie Dwyer

I think the Gambian military would know it's outnumbered. Gambia's military has very little combat experience. This would be a very difficult situation for them.feedback

Ousmane Badjie

You cannot push us to war for an issue we can solve politically. We don't see any reason to fight.feedback

The outgoing president told me in a simple, clear language that the results were regarded of the people and God. Let him know that leaders come and go. Sooner or later, I must also go. I urge him to change his current position and accept the verdict of the people in good faith for the sake of the Gambia, our homeland, whose people deserve peace and freedom and prosperity.feedback

Adama Barrow

This action is a reprehensible and unacceptable breach of faith with the people of The Gambia and an egregious attempt to undermine a credible election process and remain in power illegitimately.feedback

Mankeur Ndiaye

Johnson Sirleaf was supposed to fly in today, but Jammeh said 'not at the moment.feedback

Babatunde Olugboji - Human Rights Watch

We are deeply concerned by reports of belated objections to the Gambian election results raised by President Jammeh. The international community, notably (regional bloc) ECOWAS and the African Union, should loudly protest any unlawful attempt to subvert the will of the Gambian people.feedback

We call for unity and calm during this transition period, and urge the Gambian government to respect the rights of citizens to freely assemble and express their views on the election results.feedback

Karamaba Touray

He is the absolute opposite of Jammeh. He wants to restore democracy, it will be entirely different.feedback

Yahya Jammeh

If [Barrow] wants to work with us also, I have no problem with that. I will help him work towards the transition.feedback

(Barrow) was absolutely thrust into this position. He took hold of that leadership and played a seminal role in rallying the disparate opposition leaders around him.feedback

Samira Daoud - Amnesty International

This is an unjustified and crude attack on the right to freedom of expression in Gambia, with mobile internet services and text messaging cut off on polling day.feedback

Stephen Cockburn - Amnesty International

President Jammeh should not approve this profoundly damaging act that violates international human rights law. Gambia's National Assembly and the President should not endorse state-sponsored homophobia.feedback

This new law will only heap further stigma on people who are already marginalized and living in a climate of deep fear and hate in Gambia.feedback

Yahya Jammeh

We will fight these vermins called homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes, if not more aggressively.feedback

Yahya Jammeh

As far as I am concerned, LGBT can only stand for Leprosy, Gonorrhoea, Bacteria and Tuberculosis; all of which are detrimental to human existence.feedback

Yahya Jammeh

We will therefore not accept any friendship, aid or any other gesture that is conditional on accepting homosexuals or LGBT as they are now baptised by the powers that promote them.feedback

Lawrence Williams

One of the things we set up is something called the Ballabu Conservation Project which is an 85 square kilometre area that surrounds Makasutu. And within that, we have a new project 'wide open walls', which is a community-based street art project. So for the last three years I've been bringing artists from all over the world to paint in the local communities. We paint on people's houses and the plan is to hopefully start bringing tourists into the area where they will pay to come in and see the art on the walls. And that would be a direct income for the local communities.feedback

Francois Chinac

The African continent is known for its wildlife and flora. But in Gambia you have to look up to the sky. Watch the trees and you will see the country is one giant open-air aviary. Here there are more than 500 species of birds, some of them very rare.feedback

Patrick Lewis

The chimpanzees are our priority but one of the things we have a problem with is actually funding them. So we do have some funding externally, but we have developed an ecotourism project to help to us actually cater for the chimpanzee and do our job in terms of looking after the chimps.feedback

Macky Sall

If I am elected president, I will do everything possible to get an immediate cease-fire, and above all to create the conditions for lasting and definitive peace. A national inclusive effort will be organised with all the parties involved, the fighters in the MFDC, all the actors involved in the process and the neighbouring countries Gambia and Guinea Bissau.feedback
