President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday welcomed the Gambia’s President, Adama Barrow at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Naija News gathered that Barrow is visiting Nigeria for the first time since his inauguration as Gambian President on Jan. 19, 2017.

He arrived the presidential villa at about 11.50 a.m.

Buhari expended a significant effort in ensuring smooth democratic transition in Gambia when Yahya Jammeh, who was a longtime ruler of Gambia refused to step aside.

The Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) appointed Buhari the Mediator in Chief on the Gambian political impasse.
