Liberia:Tinubu commends George Weah for conceding defeat


President Bola Tinubu has extended his congratulations to the government and people of Liberia following the successful conduct of the Liberian presidential election. 

In a statement released on Saturday morning, President Tinubu, through his media aide, Ajuri Ngelale, commended the Liberian people for their peaceful exercise of their democratic rights. He urged them to remain steadfast in their commitment to peace and democracy.

President Tinubu also congratulated the President-elect, Joseph Boakai, and encouraged him to unite the country and deliver good governance to the people of Liberia. 

He commended the outgoing President, George Weah, for his leadership and sportsmanship in conceding defeat and averting any form of socio-political crisis.

“I commend President George Weah for his sterling example, undiluted patriotism, and statesmanship,” President Tinubu said. 

“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.”
