Gambia’s president Adama Barrow has removed Islamic from the country’s official name . He said the country’s official name will no longer contain the word “Islamic”,  which had been added by Jammeh in 2015.

The new president said The Gambia, whose population is 90 percent Muslim, with the rest Christian and animist, was a republic “not the Islamic republic”.

In his news conference, Barrow also said he would ensure press freedom in the country and said that his cabinet picks would have to declare their assets before assuming office.
