Secretary-General tells Gbagbo it's his last chance to "gracefully exit"
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon makes it clear to Cote d'Ivoire's Laurent Gbagbo that he must go, stating it's his last chance to "gracefully exit".
The UN head made the comments in Washington, DC following a closed door meeting with US leaders discussing the situation in the African country as well as other matters.
Gbagbo has refused to hand over power to his democratically elected successor Alassane Ouattara, who won the Presidency in November.
“He has to mind the well being, safety, security and prosperity of his people, once where he was present. It is his last opportunity to gracefully exit.”
Gbagbo remains holed up in the Presidential palace in Abidjan with troops loyal to Ouattara surrounding it.
