Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari for being unable to visit his hometown Daura, Katsina State, in a couple of days now.
Yesufu who happens to be one of the patriotic Nigerians at the forefront during the recent worldwide protest against police brutality in Nigeria called out the president for being unable to secure even his hometown after been voted into office.
She alleged that Daura people now pay tax to bandits in other to stay in their very own land.
Naija News understands that Aisha Yesufu stated this while responding to a Twitter post by Buhari's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad.
Following the ongoing trend of 'saying it as it is', Bashir earlier responded to Aisha's post which reads:
"Since we are in the era of saying it as it is. Let it also be on record that Goodluck Ebele Jonathan wanted Dr Oby Ezekwesili @obyezeks to be Minister and she refused. The late President Yar'adua also offered her ministerial appointment and she turned it down."
In his response, Bashir wrote: "Saying it as it is, she also begged Nigerians to offer her the Presidency. And, we REJECTED her."
Recalling how Buhari contested and lose three times in the previous election, Aisha slammed Bashir by saying; "This from the PA of someone who was rejected 3 times, even tied wrapper to beg for votes. Cried on National TV and was not able to secure his home town after being voted into office. His people now pay tax to bandits.
When was the last time Buhari dared to visit Daura?"
