Commentator on African issues, Izak Khomo, says the opposition in Gambia was naive to threaten President Yahya Jammeh with taking him to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for criminality against humanity before the elections.
Jammeh has been refusing to step down for President-elect Adama Barrow following his defeat during the December elections.
His parliament has now endorsed he stay in power until May and declared a 90-day state of emergency.
Barrow is expected to be back in Gambia on Thursday for his inauguration ceremony.
