John Mahama congratulates George Tawlon Manneh Ousman Weah

Former president John Dramanin Mahama has congratulated Liberian President-elect, George Tawlon Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah, for winning the Boxing Day presidential run-off.

With nearly all ballots from Tuesday’s run-off vote counted, Mr Weah is well ahead of the opponent, Vice president Joseph Boakai, with more than 60% of the vote.

He will succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female president, in Liberia’s first democratic handover in decades.

In a Facebook post Friday, December 29, 2017,captured by Ghanapoliticsonline.com ahead of the official declaration, the former Ghanaian leader who also headed the ECOWAS Observer Mission to the county, stated that Liberians have made themselves and the ECOWAS region proud and with the election fever now over, every Liberian should see the task of nation-building and development as a collective patriotic responsibility.

“Congratulations to the CDC and George Weah and the Unity Party’s Joseph Boakai for the great sportsmanship exhibited. We are continuing to prove especially in the West African Subregion that we have embraced democracy and will play by its rules”.

Again he mentioned that the work done by ECOWAS and the technical team assembled to assist the Liberian National Elections Commission is a testament to my strong belief when I was Chair of the ECOWAS Authority that we can make our regional organization a strong and vibrant one in the affairs of our countries.
