Ghana international Michael Essien has congratulated Liberia’s president-elect, George Weah.

Following a peaceful presidential run-off on the 26th of December, 2017, the former World Player of the year garnered 61.5% of the vote while his opponent, Joseph Boakai was far behind with 38.5%.

After hearing news of Weah’s victory, Essien took to his Instagram page to congratulate him on winning the election at the second round.

He wrote: CONGRATULATIONS MR. PRESIDENT @georgeweahoff. YOU ARE VICTORIOUS AND JUST AS YOU WORKED HARD DURING YOUR PLAYING DAYS I AM SURE YOU WILL WORK HARD FOR THE GOOD PEOPLE OF #LIBERIA. GOOD LUCK AND BEST WISHES.

 

Mr Weah, 51, won the first round of the presidential election in October with 38.4% of the vote, compared with the 28.8% won by second-placed Mr Boakai, 73. The failure of any candidate to secure an outright majority forced the run-off.

He played for a string of football clubs, including AC Milan, Chelsea and Paris St-Germain, and is the only African footballer to have won both Fifa World Player of the Year and the Ballon D’Or.
