2023: My Job Is Not To Tell Peter Obi Your Excellency Sir, But To Tell Him What The People Are Going Through – Aisha Yesufu Declares
Human Rights activist, Aisha Yesufu has said her job is not to pamper the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, but to put him in check.
Naija News reports that the Labour Party chieftain took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to note that her job with Obi is not be calling him your excellency sir, but it is to put him on his feet.
According to the activist, her job is to tell the former Anambra State governor what the people are going through that he needs to know.
Yesufu said while doing that even Obi himself usually request her to tell him what he needs to know that is happening around him.
Her reaction follows a recent comment made by the Labour Party flag bearer on Berekete Family Love FM about why he chooses to go everywhere with Yesufu.
Obi was reported to have said he always moves around with the activist to hear bad comments.
He said “I want to hear the bad comments also. I want to hear the bad news. That’s why I move about with Aisha Yesufu.”
Reacting to that, Yesufu took to Twitter to affirm that truly it was her job to put him (Obi) abreast with happenings.
She tweeted “That is my job oooh! I am not there to do ‘Your excellency, your excellency’
“My job is to keep telling him what the people are going through and in fairness to him he asks me to always tell him the things he is not getting right.”
Meanwhile, Yesufu took to Twitter last week to say Obi can not fix Nigeria alone.
Naija News reported that the activists said “Peter Obi is not going to fix Nigeria alone. Vote competent people into the National Assembly.”
Speaking further in a YouTube video released shortly before the tweet, Yesufu stressed that Nigerians should not elect “selfish politicians” as lawmakers and then expect positive results if they only vote Peter Obi for president.
She maintained that people should vote for competence, not political parties.
