Aisha Yesufu warns Peter Obi against disappointing Nigerians

Human rights activist and co-convener of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, Aisha Yesufu, has reminded the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to stay true to his promises if he becomes Nigeria’s president in 2023.

Yesufu insisted that she only pledged her loyalty to Nigeria and not any individual or political party.

Yesufu is one of the most vociferous supporters of the Labour Party candidate especially on social media, where she has been using her voice to promote Obi’s candidature.

However, the activist warned that if the former Anambra State Governor goes off the course, Nigerians, and she in particular, will not hesitate to call his bluff.

She said this during a chat with Arise TV on her recent campaign activities for Obi.

Yesufu reminded anyone who cares to know that she’s not a member of the Labour Party or any other political party for that matter, but described herself as a supporter of Obi’s presidential ambition.

Yesufu’s word: “I am not a member of any political party. I have never been a member of any political party. But Peter Obi is my candidate. Just like in 2019, Dr Oby Ezekwesili was also my candidate. I was part of her campaign team and I wasn’t a member of her party.

“So, for me, it’s a good thing to be a party member as long as people want to be, but I don’t want that restriction. I don’t want to be sort of partisan, like attached to a political party.

“All I am interested in is good governance, accountability and transparency. And for me it’s about candidates, not parties. And whenever a candidate comes up from all the positions, I am going to look at who is the best for that position irrespective of whatever party he comes from.”

Obi go see anyhow: The activist further said her loyalty is to no single individual but Nigeria, warning that if Obi misbehaves after winning the election, she would hold him to account.

Yesufu’s word: “I am not loyal to any party or anybody, I am loyal to Nigeria, and for me that’s it.

“And if Peter Obi gets into office and he does anyhow, he go see anyhow o. We no send [sic]”
