Congratulations to the CDC and George Weah and the Unity Party’s Joseph Boakai for the great sportsmanship exhibited. We are continuing to prove especially in the West African Subregion that we have embraced democracy and will play by its rules.

 

The work done by ECOWAS and the technical team assembled to assist the Liberian National Elections Commission is a testament to my strong belief when I was Chair of the ECOWAS Authority that we can make our regional organization a strong and vibrant one in the affairs of our countries."
