Stop celebrating President Elect George Weah if you have not learnt any lesson from his victory. He became President when he announced his candidacy in mid-November 2004. He contested in 2005, won the first round of voting but lost in the November 8, 2005 run-off.

Realizing he lacked the basic academic qualifications to be president apart from being a fantastic footballer which wasn't and is still not enough he went back to school and got equipped to be president.

After 12 years, he is President! He was determined in his heart to be president.

What factors are stopping you today from realizing your dream? How are you facing it? Have you given up? Winners have only one attitude, they never give up, never say no or take no for an answer, they keep walking even in the face of trials.

Some of us let dreams die but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days to the sunshine and light which always comes.

You too can become a George Weah in your chosen field if you stay strong, focused and determined no matter the challenges.

See you on the wealthy side!

I hope he doesn't become like Buhari who had a similar "12-years-after" experience, but has now largely squandered the popular goodwill he enjoyed from the majority.

As ridiculous this may sound to some...He also believed in God and in a man of God....not an atheist!

Very true!
I can remember vividly when he came to contest for the election then, He was quickly brushed aside as only a mere footballer. But now he is the president.
It now looks like he only announced his destiny then to be fulfilled with time.
I believe God uses people to teach others important lessons in life, urging us to always believe and work hard instead of bothering yourself about being successful or not.
George Weah now has two accolades to his name: ist African to win world best player and now president-elect of Liberia, Commander of the armed forces!!

You can always be on top if you believe!!!

If okocha and kanu contest for president they will loose woefully so I don't think his being famous had anything to do with his victory.

He simply knew people in high places that mattered.

A perfect example of better late than never

Contested many years ago
Accused him of been uneducated,
Went to further his studies
Came back to contest the same election years after
And now the President

George Weah of Liberia first sought for Liberian presidency (2005, aged 39)

He failed, obtained his SSCE (2006, aged 40), his degree (2011, aged 45) and masters (2013, aged 47).

He won election to the Liberian Senate (2014, aged 48).

He has just been declared the country's president (2017, aged 51)

All under 12 years interval.

You're not too old to succeed!
