The UN Scribe, who made the announcement yesterday in New York through his spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric, also welcomed the peaceful conduct of the second round of the presidential election in Liberia.

Liberians on Tuesday elected former football star George Weah as President making it the first time the West African country will peacefully transit from one democratically-elected leader to another in more than 70 years.

The statement by Dujarric read;

“The Secretary-General hopes that the will of the Liberian electorate will be respected and that a seamless transfer of power will take place within constitutional timelines”.

Guterres had requested Obasanjo, a member of the Secretary-General’s High-Level Advisory Board on Mediation, to travel to the capital, Monrovia, from Thursday, Dec. 28 to Saturday, Dec. 30 Dec.

Obasanjo, who is one of 18 global leaders, senior officials and experts on the high-level board created earlier this year to advise the Secretary-General on mediation and back those efforts around the world, has participated or led in mediation efforts in Angola, Burundi, Mozambique, Namibia and South Africa, among others.
