Adhaalath Party (AP) leader Sheikh Imran Abdulla said former President Mohamed Nasheed made an exceptional sacrifice for the people of the country.
Sheikh Imran said this in a tweet when Nasheed praised his work in a tweet of his own after the two met on Sunday night.
In his tweet Nasheed said Sheikh Imran’s perseverance and steadfastness in the past years helped strengthen Nasheed’s resolve as well. There is more to be done as a united front in order to take the country to safer shores, Nasheed said.
Nasheed also commended Sheikh Imran’s wife Mariyam Reem, for her work and patience.
In response to Nasheed’s tweet, Sheikh Imran tweeted that Nasheed had made an exceptional sacrifice for the people of the country. Meeting Nasheed and sharing thoughts with him was a great honor, Sheikh Imran said.
Sheikh Imran, too, shared Nasheed’s sentiments on unity and how the country could be protected if all worked together.
This is the first official meeting of the duo after Sheikh Imran was released last Thursday.
Although Sheikh Imran had praised Nasheed, he had previously criticized Nasheed and the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP)'s government.
