President Bola Tinubu has congratulated the President-elect of Liberia, Joseph Boakai following the successful conduct of the Liberian presidential election.
The President, in a statement by his Spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale today, enjoined Boakai to unite the country and build on the popular support expressed through the ballot box to deliver good governance to the people of Liberia.
He also lauded the outgoing President, George Weah, for demonstrating uncommon leadership by conceding the election and averting any form of socio-political crisis.
“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,” Tinubu said.
