Former Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hanna Tetteh, has come under heavy criticisms from Ghanaians for her tweets questioning the coverage of the Gambian crisis by the Ghanaian media.

The Gambia, following elections in 2016, is expected to inaugurate a new president on January 19, but President Jammeh who lost and earlier accepted the results of the elections has now rejected the results.

Below are some of the tweets:
