President Weah was sworn in Monday afternoon in Monrovia in a historic event as the first peaceful transition between democratically-elected leaders since 1944. Weah takes over from Noble laureate Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, 51, who has steered the West African country away from the trauma of civil war in the last 12 years.

While taking the oath of office in front of the 35,000 capacity Samuel Doe stadium, he promised to do more than his share in moving Liberia to the next stage by making prosperity and job creation the hallmarks of his presidency. He said I will do more than my fair share to meet you expectations – but I ask you to meet mine, for I cannot do this alone.”  

He also used his inaugural speech to praise Liberia’s strong ties with countries like the US and China, stressing their importance in helping reach the country’s full potential. He also spoke of the European Union, telling the tens of thousands who had gathered to watch him become president today that the continent would “always have a special place in my heart”.

On the 16th of December, 2017, Ethiopian Airlines’ Boeing 777 flight from Addis Ababa to Lagos will for the first time have an all-female crew, the first in Africa. This simply means that all roles, from the pilots and cabin crew to in-flight ramp operations as well as flight dispatchers on the ground would be filled by women.

According to one of the airlines’pilots, Capt. Amsale Gualu, during an earlier all-female operated flight to Bangkok from Addis Ababa, “This flight shows us that if women get equal opportunities and work hard, I’m sure they can achieve whatever they want in all fields including the aviation industry.”

It would be recalled that in July 2017, Ethiopian airlines was named the BEST airline in Africa by The Skytrax World Airline Awards who compiled a list from world regions using global ratings. It has also recorded a 25 percent average growth rate in the past seven years.ethiopian-airlines
