Former Liberian President, Ms. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has deleted a tweet, where she congratulated Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Sirleaf had taken to her verified Twitter handle to congratulate the former Lagos governor on his victory at the February 25, 2023 presidential election.
“Congratulations to @officialABAT on his victory in #Nigeria, and to the Nigerian people for exercising their democratic right to vote. I encourage the new President to champion #WomenLeaders in his government and to ensure that the rights of women & girls remain a priority,” she wrote.
However, checks by metrowatchxtra.com Friday afternoon show that the former Liberian leader has now deleted her congratulatory message and didn’t give a reason for her action.
Though supporters of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi had earlier berated Sirleaf for congratulating Tinubu over an outcome of an election that they claim was marred by irregularities and currently being disputed in court.
