Governorship Elections: God Forbid, I Will Not Sacrifice Competence – Aisha Yesufu Rejects Peter Obi Directive
Political activist, Aisha Yesufu has condemned the choice of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi on the next Governor of Enugu State.
Yesufu, who is a die hard fan of Obi, has chosen to support another candidate in the Enugu gubernatorial election.
Naija News recalls that Obi, via a tweet, had called on Obidients to cast their votes for their candidates in various states across the nation during their March 11 governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections.
Obi wrote, “As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all the OBIdients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, namely, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijoke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name just a few.”
The former Anambra Governor also urged his supporters to vote for candidates with competence, character, capacity, and compassion.
However, Aisha, who seemed unsatisfied with her principal’s tweet, opined that Frank Nweke Jnr of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, (APGA) is the most qualified candidate to lead the State.
She said, “God forbid I become what I want to change. I can never sacrifice competence for partisanship!
“Frank Nweke Jnr @FrankNwekeII is the person for Enugu State. The people must be the winners and not individuals.”
