 “As you assume the mantle of leadership, I am optimistic that our two countries will continue to enhance the cordial ties of amity subsisting between us since 1847 when your country stood as the first nation in the world to recognize the sovereignty and nationhood of Liberia”, the Liberian President lamented. 

President Weah then wished for Prime Minister Johnson personal good health as he serves the Government and people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
