Papa Njie who had worked with more than five ambassadors while working at the US embassy was appointed by President Adama Barrow.

According to, the ambassador is also the leader of an opposition party, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in the Gambia.

PPP said in a statement: “The members of the executive committee supported him to accept the offer that it is a national duty to serve the nation irrespective of political affiliation.

It is with dedication and hard work Mr. Njie took the party at a difficult time and had since moved the party tremendously to attract a large number of youth and women who saw the party as the future for Gambian democracy and development.

Mr. Njie abundantly makes it very clear that he will ever continue to support the PPP and will always be in consultation with the executive’s members of the PPP.
