You are the first democratically elected indigenous President of this nation, breaking the stronghold of the minority on the political life of the nation, perhaps dethroning the hegemony forever!
H.E. Ambassador George M. Weah
President Elect, Republic of Liberia
Monrovia, Liberia Greetings, Your Excellency, May I avail myself to the opportunity to extend you heart-felt congratulations for your election to Office as President of Liberia. Yours is a historic and momentous victory culminating into a revolution summarizing and concluding over a century struggle of the Liberian people
for justice and equality. You are the first democratically elected indigenous President of this nation, breaking the stronghold of the minority on the political life of the nation, perhaps dethroning the hegemony forever! Your election has brought to light the vision of the venerable D Tweh and the struggles of many others in Liberia for "rice and rights" and the abiding aspirations of the many you represent for younger, dynamic leadership in our beloved Country - Generational Change! Sir, your momentous victory also imposes serious responsibilities on your leadership to empower your people, seek economic and social equality for them, and the protection and defense of their human and social economic rights. With this responsibility, Your Excellency, also is imposed the obligation to redress issues of justice and accountability in addition to the Reports of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and curbing corruption in the public sector as reflected in the Reports of the General Auditing Commission (GAC), its public interest objectives and goals, thus repairing Liberia's damaged credibility at home and abroad regarding corruption. Once again, Sir, please accept my congratulations for Your election and best wishes for a vibrant and successful leadership in Liberia. May GOD Almighty bless Liberia and bless you in all your works as Head of State and President of Liberia. Cllr. Jerome J. Verdier, Sr
