10 Ministers have being sworn in on February 1st, 2017 into the Adama Barrow's cabinet, this happens after he returned into the country following a political crisis.

In a vote in December, Barrow defeated longtime leader Yahya Jammeh, who during several weeks refused to step down.
Barrow left the country for Senegal, where he remained until Jammeh agreed to step aside and go into exile.
Ten of the new Gambian government’s 18 ministers were sworn in Wednesday, less than a week after freshly-elected President Adama Barrow arrived in the country following a major political crisis.
In a vote in December, Barrow defeated longtime leader Yahya Jammeh, who during several weeks refused to step down.
Barrow left the country for Senegal, where he remained until Jammeh agreed to step aside and go into exile.
Among the cabinet members sworn in was Foreign Minister Ousainou Darboe, a veteran of the opposition to Jammeh’s regime.
Special advisor to Barrow, Mai Fatty, was sworn in as interior minister, while the ex-treasurer of the main former opposition, Amadou Sanneh, became minister of finance.
Both Sanneh and Darboe were recently released from prison, where they were serving sentences imposed during Jammeh’s 22-year iron-fisted rule.
Barrow last week chose a former minister of Jammeh’s government as vice president.
Fatoumata Jallow-Tambajang has been described as the woman who persuaded The Gambia’s divided opposition parties to club together and field a single candidate in the election which Barrow eventually won.
Eight more ministers have yet to be named.
