Gambian court ‘will not hear Jammeh petition before May’

The Gambian Supreme Court will not be able to hear a petition before May from President Yahya Jammeh, who’s refusing to accept defeat in December’s election and wants the poll to be rerun, reports say.
The Nigerian judge, Onogeme Uduma, who was to act as president of the court is currently unavailable.
Our correspondent says the plaintiffs have agreed with the new date and will maintain their petition.
Regional bloc Ecowas is among those demanding that Mr Jammeh steps down. It is sending a delegation to The Gambia on Wednesday.
