Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has congratulated the President-elect of Liberia, Joseph Boakai, urging him to unite the country and leverage the popular support he received through the ballot box to provide good governance to the Liberians.
President Tinubu also congratulated the government and people of Liberia on the successful conduct of the Liberian Presidential Election.
A statement by the spokesperson to the President, Ajuri Ngelale, stated that the Nigerian Leader commended President George Weah for demonstrating uncommon leadership by conceding the election and averting any form of socio-political crisis.
“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.
“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 people’s will must always be respected,” President Tinubu added.
