Gambia’s former vice-president Fatoumata Tambajang has turned down an offer from President Adama Barrow to take up a job in the Foreign Service, State House spokeswoman says today.
Amie Bojang Sissoho made this revealation during a news conference held at the Presidency in Banjul.
The Gambian leader recently made a major cabinet reshuffle replacing his second-in-command. Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ousainou Darboe, is now the now Vice-President and has been sworn into office last Monday.
“In a letter dated 4th July 2018, Madam Tambajang declined the offer to serve in the Foreign Service,” State House Press Director told reporters while making it very clear she was not in a position to get into details about the proposal that was put before former VP Tambajang.
Amie Bojang Sissoho also added that Fatoumata Tambajang gave ‘personal and professional reasons’ to justify her decision to decline the presidential offer to serve in the country’s diplomatic service.
Over these past days, multiple efforts have been made by this medium to get a reaction from ex-Gambian VP.
“I don’t want have any interview at this moment,” she told this reporter in a succinct message.
