“The peace and stability of this country lies in the hands of the Honorable Supreme Court. The Liberians people are watching. The voice of the people is the voice of God and the will of the people must be respected,” Weah said.
“We are calling on the international Community, ECOAWS to pay keen attention to the ongoing electoral process and ensure that the will of the Liberian people prevail.”

As a political leader of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) I have been the custodian of peace we all are enjoying today. And I will do all I can in my power to preserve the peace and stability of our dear country,” Senator assured Liberians.
Weah said CDC stands ready to move throughout the length and birth of this country campaigning to ensure nothing but victory.
