Adama Barrow has taken the oath of office as The Gambia’s new President. the inauguration took place at his country’s embassy in neighbouring Senegal.
The ceremony was administered by Sheriff Tambadou, president of the Gambian Bar Association.
The Gambia now has two men claiming to be president.
Its parliament voted earlier this week to extend Yahya Jammeh’s rule by 90 days while he challenges his election defeat at the hands of Mr Barrow, a former estate agent, in the courts.
