In recognition of his astute role in what history considers as an election that expressed the mind of the people without intimidation or electoral violence as majorly seen in other Africa counties, Liberia’s President George Weah, emerges as the winner of this year’s International Peace Prize Medal Award 2023.

The International Association of World Peace Advocates (IAWPA) through the office of its International Director, African Affairs, His Eminence, Amb. Dr. John Metchie, yesterday, announced the Liberian President as the recipient of the award, in appreciation of the November 14, 2023, presidential election.

It can be referenced that President George Weah was the first Africa 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 sit-tight leaders within the African continent.

According to the association, the award presentation is scheduled to hold on January, 2024, at the office of the President in Monrovia, Liberia.
