President Bola Tinubu has hailed the government and people of Liberia on the successful conduct of the country’s presidential poll as well as congratulating
the President-elect, Joseph Boakai, who won the mandate of the people.
The President, in a release issued on Saturday by his Media Adviser, Ajuri Ngelale,
enjoined the President-elect to unite the country and build on the popular support expressed through the ballot box to deliver good governance to the people of Liberia.
President Tinubu commended President George Weah for demonstrating uncommon leadership by conceding the election and averting any form of socio-political crisis.
The President said President Weah’s great act of democratic sportsmanship is exemplary, particularly at this time in West Africa, when democracy is under attack by malign actors who are bent on subverting the will of the people.
According to President Tinubu: “I commend President George Weah for his sterling example, undiluted patriotism, and statesmanship. He has defied the stereotype that peaceful transitions of power are untenable in West Africa. He has demonstrated that the outcome of elections in the sub-region need not become the propellant of violence and unrest and that the will of the people must always be respected”.
The President thanked the people of Liberia for peacefully exercising their rights and implored them to remain steadfast in the furtherance of peace and democracy.
