Handover of power: Open letter to the Gambian President Yahya Jammeh

 

Salam alaikum your excellency sir,

First, i urge you to patiently watch the video clips herewith.

The end of the former Liberian President Samuel Doe

The end of the former Côte d’Ivoire President Laurent Gbagbo

 

Haven finished watching the videos, I am sure, it is either you like or dislike it.

You can also see that situations of the two former Presidents are quite related to yours as they in one way or the other does not respect the electoral wishes of the people which later snowballed to bringing their tenures to an end and a life disgrace for them and their family.

Another thing is that, inspite of their passion and love to remain in power for life, believing that the Military would be used to perpetuate themselves in power and suppressed the voice of the masses, they failed.

Sir, this is a simple logic, they both failed to respect the electoral wishes of the people among other contributory factors. No doubt that, any president at present or in future aspiring to do same will always fail.

Do I see you interjecting what I just said sir, citing examples of some African President that had been ruling for long and are still there, thinking that they will remain in power till they die, I can tell you that another African president, who had been in power for ages will soon be booted out, inspite of the years spent in power, he won’t be allowed to die in power because there will be more confusion if he dies there, as I urge you not to believe in that concept.

Above all, I humbly urge you to humbly hand over power to the winner of the Gambia election held on 1 December 2016, President elect Mr. Adama Barrow on 19 January 2017, to avoid disgrace as showed in the above videos, because one thing is certain, you can’t have your way and your wish cannot override that of the Gambians on this electoral issue, and we don’t want unnecessary bloodshed any longer in Africa, as we are still grappling to get rid of poverty not to talk of avoidable deaths caused by greed and ego of those who supposed to protect Africans.

Please respect the wishes of the Gambians, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU), and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

JAMMEY, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT, HAD IT BEEN IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR THE SUN TO ORBIT THE EARTH ALONE, GOD ALMIGHTY WOULDN’T BE INTERCHANGING IT WITH THE MOON, BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN LIFE HAVE THEIR TIME AND SEASONS.

ALSO, JUST AS A CLOCK PASSIONATELY WISHES TO CONTINUE TO ASCEND UP UNENDING, EVEN WHEN IT REACHES 12: 00 O’CLOCK, BUT THE NATURE DOES NOT JUST PERMIT IT TO CONTINUE TO 13:00 O-CLOCK, IT MUST DESCEND AGAIN TO 1: 00 O’CLOCK.

SO, MR YAHYA ABDUL-AZIZ JEMUS JUNKUNG JAMMEH, A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE.

Please read about the fall of Samuel Doe

Samuel Kanyon Doe (May 6, 1951 – September 9, 1990) was a Liberian politician who served as the leader of Liberia from 1980 to 1990. Then Master Sergeant Doe served as chairman of the People’s Redemption Council and de facto head of state after staging a violent coup d’etat in 1980; he killed President William R. Tolbert, Jr., and executed many of his True Whig Party supporters.

Doe attempted to legitimize his regime with passage of a new constitution in 1984 and elections in 1985. However, opposition to his rule increased, especially after the 1985 elections, which were declared to be fraudulent by most foreign observers. For political reasons, the US continued to support him.

Doe was captured in Monrovia on September 9, 1990 by Prince Y. Johnson, leader of INPFL, a breakaway faction of Charles Taylor’s NPFL. General Quinoo, the head of ECOMOG had invited Doe to the ECOMOG headquarters for a meeting and assured him of his safety from the rebels. On the morning of September 9, 1990, Doe arrived at a precarious time during an ongoing change in guard duty from the well-armed and better equipped Nigerian team of peacekeepers to the weaker Gambian contingent.

The Nigerian team had just withdrawn from the scene when Doe’s convoy of lightly armed personnel arrived, all cheerful anticipating no trouble. Doe was escorted to General Quinoo’s office where he was formally welcomed while most of his team of aides and guards waited outside. Johnson’s rebels surprised everyone by arriving on the scene uninvited, heavily armed, overwhelming and disarming everyone of Doe’s team encountering no resistance.

They started shooting Doe’s team in singles and later in groups. Upon hearing the gunshots from outside, Doe expressed concern to Quinoo who assured him that all was fine. Quinoo later, excused himself to check up on what was going on outside and was followed by his ADC Captain Coker of the Gambian contingent. They both took cover upon assessing the situation. Johnson’s men moved indoors, finished off Doe’s remaining team, shot him in the leg, and took him captive.

When the dust settled, over 80 of Doe’s men laid dead. Coker characterized the incident as not even a fight but a brutal massacre. Remarkably, none of the ECOMOG personnel was shot in the carnage. Doe was taken to Johnson’s military base and tortured before being killed and exposed naked in the streets of Monrovia. To prove that he was not protected by black magic, his ears were cut off, then some of his fingers and toes, finally he was murdered by decapitation; his body was later exhumed and reburied. The spectacle of his torture was videotaped and seen on news reports around the world. The video shows Johnson sipping a Budweiser as Doe’s ear is cut off.  Wikipedia.

Please read about the fall of Laurent Gbagbo

Laurent Gbagbo was born on 31 May 1945) was the President of Côte d’Ivoire from 2000 until his arrest in April 2011.

A historian by profession, as well as an amateur chemist and physicist, Gbagbo was imprisoned in the early 1970s and again in the early 1990s, and he lived in exile in France during much of the 1980s as a result of his union activism. Gbagbo founded the Ivorian Popular Front (FPI) in 1982 and ran unsuccessfully for President against Félix Houphouët-Boigny at the start of multi-party politics in 1990. He also won a seat in the National Assembly of Côte d’Ivoire in 1990.

Gbagbo claimed victory after Robert Guéï, head of a military junta, barred other leading politicians from running in the October 2000 presidential election. The Ivorian people took to the streets, toppling Guéï. Gbagbo was then installed as President.

Following the 2010 presidential election, Gbagbo challenged the vote count, alleging fraud. He called for the annulment of results from nine of the country’s regions. Alassane Ouattara was declared the winner and was recognized as such by election observers, the international community, the African Union (AU), and the Economic Community of West African States. However, the Constitutional Council, which according to Article 94 of the Ivorian Constitution both determines disputes in and proclaims the results of Presidential elections, declared that Gbagbo had won.

After a short period of civil conflict, Gbagbo was arrested by backers of Alassane Ouattara, supported by French Forces of “Operation Unicorn”. In November 2011, he was extradited to the International Criminal Court, becoming the first head of state to be taken into the court’s custody. Wikipedia.

I WILL BE HAPPY TO SEE YOU HANDOVER THE SEAT OF PRESIDENT TO MR. ADAMA BARROW FOR PEACE TO REIGN IN GAMBIA AND AFRICA.

AFRICA SHALL BE GREAT AND PEACEFUL

May God Guide Our Leaders Right
