The Gambia's President, Yahya Jammeh, told the BBC that he is certain he has won Thursday's election as he does not have an opposition.

"What he have are people who hate this country," he told Focus on Africa's reporter Umaru Fofana.

"Do I look like a loser? There is no way I can lose unless you tell me that all Gambian people are mad," he added.

President Jammeh has won three elections since his 1994 coup and says that he will be in power as long as the Gambians want him to.
