My fellow revolutionaries, liberation is a noble cause. We must fight to obtain it.
I will go on my knees and ask the Liberian people to participate in bringing peace and stability to our country.
They say I do not have the qualifications to be president, that I do not have education. Well, I would never divide the Liberian people.
My government will be open. Anyone found guilty of corruption will be dealt with in accordance with the law. If you are corrupt you will have to hang your boots.
I can see in your eyes, I can see in your faces, I can see you cry. But what I want to say, there's no reason to cry. Do not, in the name of peace, go in the streets and riot.
