Adama Barrow will spend his annual leave at his home village of Mangkamang Kunda in Jimara district in the Upper River Region.
The fifteen days leave ends on Monday, 28 May when the president is expected to resume duties.
This will be the first time the President will be visiting his home since he came to office last year.
Meanwhile, President Barrow declares Tuesday, 1 May 2018 as public holiday in observance of Workers’ Day.
In The Gambia, unionists in partnership with the Labour Department under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Employment deliver statements on the plight of workers and government policies to improve workers’ conditions.
In 2017, Barrow was criticized for erecting what critics said was a fancy executive building at his home village, barely a year after coming to power.
