The U.S. has congratulated the people of Liberia on the successful conclusion of the presidential run-off election, and President-elect George Weah on his victory.
Buhari, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, yesterday also commended the Liberian people on the peaceful conduct of the historic presidential run-off election, stressing that "this is another plus on Africa's democratic scoreboard".
Ekweremadu urged the former World Footballer of the Year "to reciprocate the huge goodwill and confidence reposed in him by the good people of Liberia and the global community by running an all-inclusive government".
With 98 per cent of the votes so far counted, Mr. Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change polled 61.5 per cent.
Fiesta Bowl nostalgia? Not for Penn State and Washington
The Nittany Lions had 367 yards by halftime against a defense that allowed 277.4 yards per game during the regular season. In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington , everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for.
Liberia's National Election Commission has declared George Weah president-elect and Jewel Howard-Taylor vice president-elect following a December 26 runoff poll.
It is the former AC Milan man's second time of running for Liberia's top office, having lost to current president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2005.
This is Liberia's first peaceful transfer of power from one democratically elected head of state to another in more than 70 years.
The 51-year-old Weah, a senator who entered politics after retirement from soccer more than a decade ago, led the first-round vote in October but didn't receive enough ballots to win outright over the 73-year-old Boakai, who has been vice president for 12 years. "All we are asking is for all Liberians to come together so we can build our country".
Police identify victims in Troy slayings
His brother who was killed, 11-year-old Jeremiah or "JJ" Myers, was loved at the Troy Boys and Girls Club. However, indications from the crime scene lead police to believe the crime was not a random act.
While with AC Milan, Weah in 1995 won World Player of the Year. He played for top local clubs before starting his worldwide career in Cameroon, then moved on to AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain, where he became famous.
Joseph Boakai in an address to the nation on Friday is offering to help Weah's new government if needed.
The results were almost identical to those announced on Thursday evening by the commission after 98 percent of returns. Macron invited him to visit, saying Weah had "a special place in the French's hearts". A Nobel Laureate, Johnson is credited with restoring peace after the civil war. She led the country from back-to-back civil wars and saw it through a deadly Ebola outbreak that killed almost 5,000 Liberians.
