In his inaugural speech, Barrow thanked all Gambians, both home and abroad for standing behind him in his race to the presidency. “Now I know power belongs to the people,” he said.
He also thanked President Buhari of Nigeria and other Head of States in Africa for their support in the past few weeks.
Barrow also called on all arms personnel shout to the barracks.
On his agenda, he said: “My government would implement complementary reforms. This is a change that will bring the Gambians their merits.”
