The ECOWAS Commission Head of Mission in The Gambia, Her Excellency Miatta Lilly French has confirmed that ECOMIG will start winding down unless otherwise.

“You (New ECOMIG Commander) also come at a time when the dynamics of the mission are going to change based on what the heads of states agreed. It is agreed that the commission should now start the process of winding down. It’s been extended for a year, but then they’re always conscious of the security situation. And what that dictates will also have an impact on what is decided at the end of the day. But for now, that is the decision that exists and we will start working towards that. Bear in mind always that the security situation is paramount. The reason why we are here is to provide security for the Gambia and to ensure that democracy prevails and if there are any threats. They will also respond to that,” she said.

Her Excellency Miatta Lilly French made these revelations at the ECOMIG Force Headquarters in Bakau, near the Fajara Barracks where the outgoing Force Commander, Colonel Cheikh Omar Tamba handed over command to the incoming Force Commander, Colonel Ousmane Aly Kane.
