Tweeps Slam Ex-Liberian President Sirleaf Over Comment On Hadiza Bala Usman’s Suspension

Twitter users have descended on the former president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf over her “I am disheartened” comment on the suspension of Hadiza Bala Usman as the Managing Director (MD) of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

The 82-year-old took to Twitter to complain against the government of Nigeria on Saturday. She further urged “adherence to the rule of law and fair and equal treatment as the situation evolves”.

But this position was met largely with criticism from Twitter users who replied to her tweet - majority of them Nigerians.

“I am disheartened to hear about the suspension of Nigerian Ports Authority MD @hadizabalausman, who I have known to be an accomplished leader and dedicated public servant.

“I urge adherence to the rule of law and fair and equal treatment as the situation evolves,” Sirleaf wrote.

See some reactions to Sirleaf’s tweet below:
