24th President of Liberia is World Best Footballer- George Weah

George Weah was inaugurated on Monday 22 January 2018 as the new President of Liberia. He took office at a ceremony in the packed SKD stadium in the capital, Monrovia.


“I have spent my life in stadiums, but I have never felt like this,” said the former football champion who succeeds President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the first peaceful democratic transition Liberia has known over the past 70 years. President Weah thanked the West African community  and the UN Mission in Liberia for their efforts in re-establishing peace and security in a country after two civil wars spanning over 14 years between 1989 and 2003.
George Weah, who won the second round of presidential elections at the end of last year, has no experience in politics. Yet, many Liberians are placed their hopes in him to deliver.  The weak economic situation in Liberia was a major factor that determined his victory.
George Weah, grew up playing football in the poor suburbs of Monrovia, before later becoming an international star and Liberian hero through a distinguished football career at Milan, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, winning the Ballon d’Or and Fifa’s world player in 1995. Liberians have reason to believe their lives are about to be dramatically improved under Weah. Weah has said so repeatedly in his campaign. Last month he vowed that “transforming the lives of all Liberians is a singular mission and focus of his presidency”
Numerous delegates from all around the world and Africa, who graced the events were full of admiration for the decorous way Liberia conducted their elections.
As we congratulate President Weah, do you believe Liberia is set for dramatic changes within the shortest possible time under Weah?
