Sick Gambian Vice President Gove dies in India at the age of 65
Gambian President Adama Barrow on Wednesday confirmed the death of Gambian Vice President Badara Aliu Goff due to the disease in India.
Yove, 65, was appointed vice president of the West African country in 2022. He previously served as education minister.
Barrow said on Twitter that Gove had died “after a short illness,” without providing further details.
“Comrade #Gambiz, it is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of #VP, His Excellency Badara Ali Jove. The sad event took place in India after a short illness. May God grant him Jannat Firdausi,” Barrow wrote on Twitter.
The Vice President left The Gambia about three weeks ago to seek medical treatment.
