In a video seen by AKELICIOUS, Aisha Yesufu, a social critic and human rights activist, boldly asserted that she cannot be intimidated as she continues to demand good governance from President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
Yesufu firmly stated that she will persist in criticizing Tinubu’s government in light of the escalating economic challenges and worsening insecurity in the nation, emphasizing that Tinubu himself had done the same in the past.
She condemned those attempting to intimidate her due to her stance against the government, emphasizing that she holds the same right as Tinubu, who had criticized former President Goodluck Jonathan for similar issues in the country.
In the 10 minutes video she shared on her X handle, Yesufu digged out past tweets in which Tinubu criticized Jonathan, insisting, “It’s our turn to demand good governance and accountability.”
“The right Bola Ahmed Tinubu had to call out Government in 2014 is the Right Aisha Yesufu has in 2024 to call out an illegitimate government.
“No Nigerian is more Nigerian than any Nigerian. We are all citizens in this country; no one is a slave. This country belongs to all of us, and nobody can intimidate us in our own father land. No one can intimidate us in this country everyone is a stakeholder to.
“So, all this talk about trying to get people intimidated, drop it! Drop it!……..”if they break head, nothing dey there, blood go gush out.” That’s it.
“Wherever, however, anyway they want am, na so e go be”. This country like I said, belongs to all us.
“It’s our turn to demand good governance and accountability. It’s our best to ensure Nigeria has the best it’s supposed to have. It’s our turn to have free, good quality education and development.
“If you like put a bullet through this woman, the message will be there.”
“It’s better to die for nothing than to live for nothing.”
“We will speak whether they like it or not. We are citizens. And I repeat, no Nigerian is more Nigerian than any of us. This is our country.
