SLAJ iVerify has fact-checked the above claim and flagged it as true.
“That the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and the First Lady of Angola, Ana Dias Lourenco visited Sierra Leone in commemoration of the United Nations World Day” social media claim.
SLAJ iVerify has fact-checked a viral social media claim that the First Lady of Nigeria and that of Angola visited Sierra Leone over the weekend and flagged it as true.
To arrive at this conclusion, we did the flowing:
A SLAJ iVerify fact-checker was present at the State Lodge where both first ladies were received by Sierra Leone’s First Lady, Dr. Fatima Maada Bio.
About a year ago, Sierra Leone proposed to the United Nations a resolution declaring November 18th as a world day to recognize victims of sexual exploitation and violence.
That resolution was jointly supported by the Federal Republic of Nigeria and overwhelmingly supported by many other member states of the UN across the world.
This is therefore the first anniversary of the passing of the resolution.
