President George Manneh Weah has returned safely to the country following a four-day successful state visit to Senegal.

He had gone out to honor an invitation extended him by his Senegalese Counterpart, President MackySall, to join throngs of other heads of state from Africa and other Continents for the Senegalese President’s 2nd inaugural ceremony and be a part of his country’s Independence celebrations.

According to the Executive Mansion’s press statement, President Weah and delegation returned home on Friday, 5 April, touching down in the morning at the Roberts International Airport (RIA), Margibi County.
