Weah Wins Int’l Peace Prize Award By: Julius Konton


It means not be a surprise to many following his impact and contributions to peace related activities over the years, but it appears to be a unique and historic way to exit the Liberian Presidency as the International Association of World Peace Advocates on Sunday awarded the International Peace Prize Medal Award to President George Weah. International Association of World Peace Advocates (IAWPA) through the office of its International Director, African Affairs, Eminence, Amb. Dr. John Metchie, made the announcement on Sunday.  Among other things, the award is in total appreciation of the just-concluded presidential election in Liberia, which was generally characterized as peaceful under the stewardship of the CDC- led government headed by President Weah. In a peaceful and shocking manner and form, the Liberian leader conceded defeat ahead of the official pronouncement by the National Elections Commission something that has up till present time been overly appreciated and welcome by others.  The honoring was also showered with praises for his stands both home and abroad and plus many others, people say may have contributed to said international recognition.  It can be recalled that President George Weah was the first African President to receive the International Peace Mayor Award from IAWPA in 2018, an award that saw him demonstrate how peaceful he is up till the 2023 presidential election in the country, where he lost and accepted the result unlike other African leaders on the continent.  Meanwhile, the award presentation is scheduled to take place in January, 2024, at the office of the President in Monrovia, Liberia.
