Liberia’s new President Joseph Boakai has been declared “perfectly fine” by his doctors according to his office.
The 79-year-old failed to reach the end of his inauguration speech and had to be helped away from the podium during his swearing-in ceremony on Monday.
His office said he had suffered heat exhaustion but had now resumed his normal activities.
Concern about Mr Boakai’s health was a major issue during last year’s election campaign, he however, narrowly defeated the outgoing president, George Weah, in a run-off election in November.
“The president is normal, and he’s doing well,” Amos Tweh said.
“His doctors have declared him perfectly fine,” Charles Snetter from the president’s office said in a statement.
