Gambia's president, Yahya Jammeh, has declared Thursday, January 19, 2012, as another non-working public holiday throughout Gambia "in observance of his inaugural ceremony as the President of the Republic of the Gambia".

Recall that 2 non-working public holidays had been declared, last November (2011-11-21 and 2011-11-24), around the date of the actual presidential election.

In the previous presidential election (2006-12-18), President Jammeh had also declared a public holiday to celebrate his victory in the presidential election (2006-12-01), albeit much later (December 18, 2006).
