State House, Banjul, 28th May 2022:  President Adama Barrow has reaffirmed his government’s stance against unconstitutional change of governments, saying it undermines peace and sustainable development. 

The President was speaking Saturday during the 16th African Union Extraordinary Summit on Terrorism and Unconstitutional Change of Government in Africa, in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. 

President Barrow said his government fully supports ECOWAS’s position against coups and violent means of assuming power. He called for the quick return to constitutional order in all affected countries. 

Additionally, he advocated for the need to strengthen democracy, peace, security, and development to counter the undesirable conditions leading to an unconstitutional change in governments. He called on his fellow African leaders to renew their commitment to addressing development challenges and socio-economic inequality on the continent. 

Sharing The Gambia’s experience, President Barrow said his government’s policy of enlarged democratic inclusion has enabled diverse participation in the country’s development and reconciliation process.
