Bakary Jammeh, the former Governor of the Central Bank Monday clarified that he did not say or write anything regarding whether or not he will complete his five year term of office at the aforesaid bank contrary to what is trending on social media.

He told Foroyaa: “It’s not true. I never say that neither did I write it.’’

When asked whether he has reported to his new place of assignment as Trade Minister, he responded: “Well, it’s premature for me to make comments on that as now, but whenever I want to make comment I call the press for briefing.’’

A staff of the Central Bank Monday told Foroyaa on condition of anonymity that the new appointee Buah Saidy is in office.
