The Former Minister for Youth and Sports during the Jammeh regime, Alieu Jammeh has been appointed as overseer at the University of The Gambia’s planning office two weeks ago.

According to credible sources, Mr. Jammeh’s appointment came after a directive from the Office of The President was issued to hire him. “A directive came that he should be appointed as he awaits a position in our Foreign Missions within the next six months” a source disclosed

The directive from the office of the President first stated that Alieu be appointed at the school of business and public administration as a lecturer but was later moved to the planning office based on recommendation by the school.

Alieu Jammeh tendered his resignation to former President, Yahya Jammeh during the political impasse in December. He was replaced immediately by one Johnny Gomez, President of The Gambia Cricket Association.

Alieu has a BSC in public administration in addition to a masters degree in political science.
