In a dispatch from the United States of America, Onesimus G. S. Gayemen is quoted as saying “while it is true that the election of Ambassador George Weah to this noble office comes as a surprise to millions of people at home and abroad, simply because of his career background, a lot of Liberians over the past years saw in this young man three characteristics that make an individual to be a successful leader, that is peace, patriotism and preservation.”
According to Gayemen, a veteran journalist, the man George Manneh Weah from time to time has been involved in the promotion of peace and tolerance among his peers and other people.

“We the patriotic and grateful Liberians see Ambassador Weah’s victory as a victory for all Liberians, as doubtlessly the gracious hand of God is behind his election and this should be seen as the fulfilment of prophecy. He is indeed the symbol of peace, genuine patriotism and courage,” he said.
