PRESIDENT WEAH DELIVERS FAREWELL SPEECH, TOUTS ECONOMIC ACHIEVEMENTS

Date:

MONROVIA – In a poignant farewell address to the people of Liberia, President George Weah expressed pride in the economic progress achieved during his tenure, asserting that the nation’s economy is in a far healthier state than when he assumed office. As he prepares to pass the mantle to President-elect Joseph N. Boakai, Weah highlighted the strides made in bolstering Liberia’s financial stability.

“We are leaving behind a better economy than we inherited,” President Weah declared in his parting words to the nation. “Tomorrow, President-elect Joseph N. Boakai will inherit a stronger economy than I inherited.”

Central to his address was the revelation of a substantial increase in Liberia’s net international reserve position. President Weah disclosed that upon assuming office in 2018, he inherited approximately ninety-four million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand United States dollars in net international reserves. However, as he prepares to step down, he emphasized that the next administration will inherit a significantly augmented reserve.

The outgoing president’s testament to the improved economic condition resonated through his speech, as he credited his administration’s policies and strategies for fostering this positive transformation. President Weah’s emphasis on the economic legacy he leaves behind underscores the significance of financial stability and progress as a cornerstone of his presidential tenure.

In response to President Weah’s farewell address, reactions among Liberians have been mixed, with some expressing appreciation for the economic improvements under his leadership, while others have called for a more comprehensive evaluation of his administration’s overall impact. As the nation anticipates the inauguration of President-elect Joseph N. Boakai, the spotlight is now on the incoming leadership and their vision for sustaining and building upon the economic advancements achieved during President Weah’s term.

As Liberia prepares for this pivotal transition of power, the legacy of President George Weah’s economic stewardship will undoubtedly remain a focal point of national discourse, shaping the trajectory of the nation’s future economic policies and aspirations.
