Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan had acted in a typical fashion when he conceded the 2015 election to Muhammadu Buhari, the incumbent president.

In this three-minute video posted on YouTube, Jammeh is seen congratulating Barrow in a cheerful mood.

“Am calling you to wish you all the best, the Gambian people have spoken and I have no reason to contest the will of Almighty Allah,” he said.

Jammeh has been in power for 22 years. The West African country has not had a smooth transfer of power since independence in 1965.
