The country's electoral commission said the former world player of the year had taken 61.5 per cent of the vote from 98.1 per cent of ballots cast.

"My fellow Liberians, I deeply feel the emotion of all the nation", Weah wrote on Twitter after the results were announced.

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has congratulated the newly elected President of Liberia, George Opong Weah, describing him as someone destined by God to be president.

He won 38.4% of votes in the first round on 10 October, while his opponent Boakai came second with 28.8%.

They have been vying to replace Africa's first female president, Nobel Peace Prize victor Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who has served two terms.

Weah grew up in Clara Town slum in Monrovia and went on to become the only African to win Fifa World Player of the Year, starring for AC Milan, Paris St Germain and Chelsea. Two presidents who served prior to Taylor were assassinated.

After a violent military coup in 1980 it experienced instability and civil war that ended only in 2003.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres hailed the "peaceful conduct" of the vote, praising "the government, political parties and the people of Liberia for the orderly poll". Liberia has crossed the Rubicon, " the former VP said.

Weah had run unsuccessfully for president twice before.

In the following election's run-off, in 2011, when he ran as a running mate to the opposition candidate, his coalition boycotted the vote, citing irregularities.

Weah looked set to sweep 14 of Liberia's 15 counties in the run-off. She is the ex-wife of Charles Taylor, a former president and warlord serving 50 years in Britain for war crimes in neighboring Sierra Leone.

He said that the biggest problem of Africa was leaders clinging to power against the will of the people.

The run-off was delayed for seven weeks due to legal challenges lodged by Boakai's Unity Party against the electoral commission over the conduct of the first round, but numerous complaints appeared to have been addressed in the second round.
