United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres has announced he is sending Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo to Liberia.

Guterres says this is to support the transfer of power peacefully to a democratically-elected President.

He requested Obasanjo, who is a member of the Secretary-General’s High-Level Advisory Board on Mediation, to travel to the capital, Monrovia, from December the 28th to 30th.

This would be Liberia’s first peaceful transfer of power from one democratically-elected leader to another in more than 70 years.
