"I have spent many years of my life in stadiums, but today is a feeling like no other," President Weah told crowds in the capital Monrovia.

war.

In his inauguration speech, Mr Weah said he couldn't offer any "quick fixes" but rather steady progress towards the goals of Liberians.

His biggest priorities, he said, would be to fight corruption and pay civil servants "a living wage," and show the private sector that Liberia was "open for business".
