Nigerian Twitter users have turned on the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, after he sent congratulatory message to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President-elect on his victory at the polls.
Zelensky expressed anticipation to work with the Nigerian government to overcome global challenges including food security in tweet he shared on Thursday.
The tweet read, “Congratulations to @officialABAT on winning the Nigerian presidential election. I look forward to close cooperation. I’m convinced that bilateral interaction will be strengthened. (Ukraine) is ready to work together to overcome global challenges, including threats to food security!”.

However, the tweet didn’t sit well with Nigerians as they were quick to pounce Zelensky’s tweet with someone tweeting, “Our democracy was invaded”.
@valentinowpg tweeted, “Mr. President you may have to do this congratulation once again in the nearest future. We know when you won your presidential election it was the will of Ukrainians that voted for you and voted out pro-Russian govt. Ours wasn’t the will of the people. Good luck in the war.”
@gaiuschibueze said, “No wonder Russia wants to run over your country.”
“It is now obvious that Zelensky has not learnt enough lessons,”@Chief_Ajiji partly said.
“Our democracy was invaded and you’re congratulating the man … on behalf of Ukrainians,”@aai_austin tweeted.
