Gambia’s president Adama Barrow has removed Islamic from the country’s name which he said is a republic not Islamic republic as alleged by the immediate past president Yahya Jammeh.
President Barrow said the country’s official name will no longer contain the word “Islamic”, which had been added by Jammeh in 2015. The new president said The Gambia, whose population is 90% Muslim, with the rest Christian and animist, was a republic “not the Islamic republic”.
