President Gambian, visiting the religious town of Touba, delivered a speech full of truths before the Caliph General of the Mourides Serigne Sidy Mokhtar Mbacké.
Barrow asserts that the Mourides’ guide played a key role in his election. According to him, the Caliph blessed him during a trip he made to Touba, and made prayers for him during the election campaign. Serigne Sidy Makhtar Mbacke had even promised him victory.
The successor of Yaya Jammeh thus wishes to express his gratitude to Touba for his contribution. However, his trip to Senegal will not be that spiritual. He will take advantage of it to gather the advice of President Macky Sall and, in the wake, warm the Dakar-Banjul axis, accustomed to the cold strokes since the accession of Jammeh to power.
