According to an Executive Mansion release issued here Wednesday, the Liberian leader made the disclosure Tuesday evening at the Robert International Airport (RIA) when she addressed journalists upon her arrival from The Gambia where she led a high-level ECOWAS delegation to mediate in the ongoing political crisis resulting from the just-ended elections.
