Gambia Opposition Group Formed in Senegal

In the article, it talks about how a bunch of people from Gambia formed an opposition group in Senegal to create a government in displacement in Senegal. Their plan is to create the new government within days. Sheikh Sidia Bayo, of Gambia, said he was prompted to create the opposition group because of the recent executions of death-row prisoners. Human rights groups say that most of the prisoners were political prisoners, which means they were arrested for their political beliefs.

The group (the National Transitional Council of The Gambia [CNTG]) aimed to see the end of President Yahya Jammeh’s “dictatorship”, according to Sheikh Sidia Bayo. The group would replace this “dictatorship” with a “political alternative”. The “political alternative” would consist of 35 members and would be based in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. Clearly, even though these neighboring countries sometimes have their arguments, Gambia still wants to improve Senegal.
