President Weah has graciously met in audience a Guinean national

(LINA) – President George Manneh Weah has received in audience a Guinean national who traveled several weeks on foot from his hometown in Guinea near the border with Mali to Monrovia.

The Liberian leader hailed Mr. Mamoudou Toure for exemplifying his love for him by fulfilling a promise he made to walk from Guinea to Liberia should President Weah emerge victorious in the 2017 Presidential election.

Toure said his dream to see the Liberian leader in person was realized when he met President Weah on Wednesday, May 9, at his office barely two days after his arrival in the country.

“I hereby acknowledge that Mr. Mamoudou Toure has fulfilled his promise to walk from the Republic of Guinea to the Republic of Liberia upon my victory as President in the Liberian 2017 Presidential election,” Weah said.

“He was received by me at the Ministry of State for Presidential Affairs Office in Monrovia, May 9, 2018, at 10.00 a.m.,” the Liberian leader said in an official Memo to Mr. Toure.

Toure had expressed confidence in the ability of President Weah as a candidate capable of winning the 2017 Presidential election in Liberia.

According to an Executive Mansion release issued here Thursday, President Weah enjoys widespread love and admiration from Liberians as well as in other parts of the African continent and the world at large.
