Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the former President of Liberia, has deleted her tweet congratulating Bola Ahmed Tinubu after he was announced winner of the Nigerian election.
Sirleaf had taken to Twitter on Monday, March 6, to write: “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.”
As with other tweets shared by world leaders to congratulate Tinubu, Nigerians trooped to the replies to express their displeasure.
Sirleaf has now deleted her congratulatory message and didn't give a reason for her action.
