There was intense internal controversy among the diplomats at the Libyan embassy in Banjul over who is the legitimate ambassador representing the North African country in Gambia. There has been no stability at the embassy, as the ambassador, Dr. Ibrahim, refused to hand over to a successor, also called Dr. Ibrahim, as his replacement. The source further disclosed that the named successor is already in the country and that it is still uncertain as to whom of the two is the actual ambassador representing Libya in Gambia. The Gambian staff working at the embassy is asked to stay at home until the controversy is resolved. There is no consular activity currently going on at the embassy.
