Liberian President George Weah has reaffirmed his commitment to continue to perform his job and maintain peace across the country.
The librarian leader spoke to newsmen as he touched down at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) from the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday afternoon.
“I am back home and it shows that no one holds me hostage and I will continue to do my work for this country and maintain the peace. Peace is the only way we can move forward because, without peace, the world is nothing”.
However, critics said the Liberian leader failed to present the existing reality facing the citizens but decided to present the country as though everything is good. In reaction, Weah rebuffed the claims and said he was glad Liberians at home and in the diaspora were happy.
In his words, “I am glad that the people are happy, both in the Diaspora and back home. I had a job to do by representing my country, which I did. Our partners are happy and we hope to continue until the second term is given to us”.
Further, the President highlighted Liberia’s cooperation in promoting peace, stability and diplomacy in the Russia and Ukraine crisis: “All I did was to let the world know of Liberia’s cooperation to promote peace, stability, and diplomacy in Russia and Ukraine.”
He added that he was thrilled that Liberia was well represented at the United Nations General Assembly, for the third time and hoped Liberians would continue to give him the job to finish his work.
