Recently the outgoing President George Weah extended an open invitation to regional leaders to grace the peaceful transfer of power from him to President-Elect Boakai on January 22, 2023.

Mr. Weah spoke as he continues to receive ovations and commendations from international colleagues over his deportment during the just-end presidential polls at which he conceded defeat in a razor-thin result.

The latest came at a meeting of ECOWAS where leaders rendered him long, deafening applauses for graciously accepting the democratic will of the Liberian people by conceding defeat to his rival, President-Elect, Mr. Joseph Nyumah Boakai.

Nigerian President Mr. Ahmed Bola Tinabu, current Chairman of ECOWAS, hailed President Weah’s demonstration of leadership in the conduct of free, fair, and credible elections.
