President Jammeh initially conceded defeat but went back days later to announce that the election was unacceptable and therefore will not step down.
Jammeh, who has been ruling Gambia for 22 years, in a recent statement, insisted that he wouldn't bulge on his previous decision.
According to him,
"I am not a coward. My right cannot be intimidated and violated. This is my position. Nobody can deprive me of that victory except the Almighty Allah.
"Already the ECOWAS meeting was a formality. Before they came, they had already said Jammeh must step down. I will not step down.
"I will not be intimidated by any power in this world. I want to make sure justice is done.
"I'm a man of peace, but I cannot also be a coward. I am a man of peace but that does not also mean that I will not defend myself and defend my country and defend my country courageously, patriotically and win."
