New president Adama Barrow has taken control of the government after former president Yahya Jammeh has left the country, and he is setting a new direction for Gambia. Mr. Jammeh critiziced the Commonwealth as a neo-colonial institution back in 2013 and withdrew Gambia from the organization, but president Barrow is now changing that decision. The foreign secretary of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson will soon visit the West African state, and is very pleased with the return of Gambia to the 52-nation grouping. President Barrows decision is an important signal for the UK, as they want to reposition themselves as a global heavy-weight.
