Liberian President George Manneh Weah has said that he will continue to ensure regular dialogue and consultation with every Liberian, irrespective of political and ethnic affiliations.

In a meeting with the country’s former Vice President Joseph Boakai on Wednesday, President Weah noted that this approach would be the hallmark of his administration towards moving the country forward in peace, harmony and stability.

The two met at the president’s office and discussed a wide range of national issues relative to maintaining peace and stability. Boakai, on the ticket of the former ruling Unity Party, lost in a run-up to President Weah in the last elections. 

According to an Executive Mansion release, the two also talked about national development and the prevailing economic situation in the country.

President Weah updated Boakai on the progress the government is making in transforming the lives of Liberians, in making the country attractive to foreign direct investment and in protecting the tenets of democracy.

For his part, the former vice president commended President Weah for the warm reception accorded him and for the president’s unwavering tolerance and open leadership ability.

He assured the president of his willingness to contribute to the nation- building process in whatever way possible.
