Senegalese President Macky Sall agreed Saturday in Bamako to welcome Gambia’s newly-elected President, Adama Barrow, to stay in Dakar until his inauguration, the official Senegalese News Agency (APS) learned.

 Mr Barrow is in Dakar since Sunday, where he arrived shortly after midnight, the source said, adding that the President of the Republic of Senegal responded favorably to the request of his Liberian counterpart, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, chairman of the Authority of the Community Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), on the sidelines of the France-Africa Summit.

 Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who travelled to the Malian capital with the president-elect of The Gambia, asked the Senegalese head of state to welcome Adama Barrow until his inauguration, which Macky Sall accepted, in the name of Senegalese hospitality”.
