The Government of the Gambia has declared ‘persona non-grata’, Lebanese businessman Hussein Tajudeen and ordered him ‘to leave the country within 72 hours.’

A government statement issued by the presidency Tuesday evening, said Mr Tajudeen has been involved in undesirable business activities which has very serious health and economic consequences to the people and the state.

‘Despite the fact that the Gambia has a liberal economy, the state will not condone greedy and unscrupulous businessmen who are just after their profit margin and not the welfare and wellbeing of the consumers,’ the government said.

The statement went on to advise all businessmen to adhere strictly to the rules of engagement in the interest of their businesses, the consumer and the state.
