It was announced yesterday that President Jammeh is to address the nation today. At the same time the press conference of the president which was covered by the GRTS was not broadcast.

The Gambia has been commended for conducting a peaceful, transparent, free and fair election. Every congratulation to the president elect is accompanied by congratulation to the incumbent for accepting the result of the election.

The incumbent congratulated the president elect and both sides have showed willingness to work together to ensure a smooth transition. This means that both sides should guard their statements in order not to upset the balance and undermine the confidence of the populace in the process. The will of the people should not only be accepted but must be seen to have been accepted.

Gambia must be seen as one nation and the interest of the nation is supreme.
