ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigeria’s lower house voted on Thursday to offer embattled Gambian President Yahya Jammeh asylum if he steps down, lawmakers said.
The House of Representatives approved a motion to authorise President Muhammadu Buhari to offer Jammeh asylum if he handed over power to Adama Barrow, who won Gambia’s Dec 1 elections.
Buhari is due to travel with other West African leaders to Gambia on Friday to persuade Jammeh to accept the election results, which he has rejected so far.
