By Jeremiah Mulbah |
President George M. Weah is set to deliver his farewell message to the nation at 8 pm today, January 21, 2024.
This marks the conclusion of his term and paves the way for the inauguration of President-elect Joseph Nyumah Boakai, scheduled for tomorrow at 8:00 AM at the Capitol Building in Monrovia.
President Weah, who secured an overwhelming mandate from the Liberian people in 2017, faced a shift in political tides as he was defeated by former Vice President Boakai in the second round of the 2023 presidential election on November 14, 2023.
The Liberian leader’s farewell address is anticipated to focus on the transition from his administration to the incoming Boakai-led government, addressing key national concerns along the way.
As he bids farewell to the citizens and residents of Liberia, President Weah is expected to reflect on the accomplishments and challenges of his tenure.
The inauguration of President-elect Boakai signifies a new chapter for Liberia, as the nation looks ahead to the policies and vision that will shape its future under the Boakai administration.
The Capitol Building in Monrovia will be the epicenter of this historic event, commencing at 8:00 AM on January 22, 2024.
As Liberia undergoes this peaceful transfer of power, the eyes of the nation are on the leadership transition, hoping for a seamless handover and a continued commitment to the prosperity and well-being of the Liberian people.
