Senator Shehu Sani (APC-Kaduna Central) has congratulated former world footballer of the year George Weah on his purported victory in Liberia’s presidential election.

The lawmaker declared Weah the victor on Twitter, when indications point to a run-off between the former footballer and vice-president Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

Liberia National Elections Commission (NEC) had warned against the spread of what it called ‘fake results,’ stating that results were going to be transmitted only via local radio and its website.
