Gambian President Adama Barrow arrived in Freetown for a two-day working visit from Wednesday 26 April to Thursday, 27 April, 2017. That was President Barrow’s first visit to Sierra Leone since assuming the mantle as President of the Republic of The Gambia.


President Barrow, accompanied by a delegation of senior government officials, was received by President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma at the Bintumani Hotel at Aberdeen in Freetown.

Welcoming his Gambian counterpart, President Koroma assured President Barrow that Sierra Leone was home for not only the Gambian leader but for all Gambians.

 

Both Heads of State expressed the need to continue to uphold democratic tenets in the subregion, noting that Sierra Leone and the Gambia share multilateral ties.


President Koroma entreated President Barrow to always call on Sierra Leone for support despite the challenges. He congratulated President Barrow on his victory and welcomed him to Sierra Leone.

 

Both leaders attended a dinner at the Bintumani Hotel immediately afterwards.

 

It would be recalled that Sierra Leone, as part of the ECOWAS mediation effort, played a pivotal role in the political impasse that rocked The Gambia after the December vote in 2016.


That visit was part of a tour of ECOWAS countries to show appreciation to ECOWAS leaders for their role in resolving The Gambian political crisis that saw the departure of former President Yahya Jammeh. The visit was also expected to strengthen the close bilateral relations between the two countries.

 

President Barrow’s visit coincides with Sierra Leone’s 56th independence anniversary celebrations and he did celebrate the occasion with the country on Thursday 27 April.
