Fayose Congratulates George Weah, Mocks Obasanjo
President-elect of Liberia George Weah is currently the beautiful bride who everyone wants to invite to dinner.
His recent victory at the Liberia presidential run-off has endeared him to a lot of people across the globe.
One of such is Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, who joined millions of people to congratulate George Weah, describing him as someone destined by God to be president.
He said “I salute George Weah’s courage and resilience in spite of the activities and machinations of oppressors and interlopers who blocked his victory 12 years ago.
"Because the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo are not God, George Weah has been able to achieve his destiny through the grace and power of God and I wish him a successful tenure.”
The governor, who also described the United Nations' (UN) choice of Obasanjo as a mediator in Liberia as misplaced, pointed out that “Someone like Obasanjo, who was at the center of the manipulation of George Weah’s electoral victory 12 years ago should not be the one to mediate now that he (Weah) has secured the victory that he was denied then.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government and particularly the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to learn from what happened in Liberia.
He said, “The emergence of George Weah as Liberia President 12 years after he was short-changed by those who wielded power at that time is a further confirmation that there is no God in man.”
