MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Government of Liberia has denied local and international media report that president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was denied into the Gambia.

According to Presidential Press Secretary, Jerelinmek Piah:“The President has not left the country since she returned from Ghana, Nigeria and London.”

Mr. Piah who made the clarification Monday, December 12, 2016 on ELBC Radio, said president was on her farm the same day when the media reported she has being denied entry into the Gambia.

It can be recalled that President Sirleaf, as ECOWAS Head recently issued a strong statement calling on Gambia President Yaya Jammeh to accept the result of the Gambian elections instead of asking for a re-run.
