Gambia’s President Adama Barrow has confirmed the country’s former Ambassador to the United States, Sheikh Omar Faye as the small West African nation’s Deputy Head of Mission to the United Arab Emirates, home to Persian Gulf city of Dubai.

Faye was the first known Gambian diplomat to disavow former President Yahya Jammeh to back Mr. Barrow, setting a precedent for more than a dozen others after Jammeh refused to cede power.

The Gambian diplomat had his fair share of opposition with activists in the U.S. during the last three years of Jammeh’s rule when he served as chargé d’affaires and later ambassador to the former autocratic ruler’s regime
