The remark comes from former leader of opposition and Agago North Mp Prof Ogenga Latigo after Gambia’s long-term leader Yahya Jammeh refused to accept defeat in elections prompting ECOWAS troops to come in.
Speaking to Kfm Prof Latigo said the situation highlights the need for African countries to adopt common democratic standards.
He says once an incumbent loses they should be willing to respect the decision of their people and peacefully hand over power.
Troops from several West African nations, including Senegal, have been deployed in The Gambia, threatening to drive Mr Jammeh out of office if he did not agree to go.
Jammeh who has led the country for 22 years was defeated in December’s election by Adama Barrow.
