Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has reacted to allegations that her husband, Aliu Yesufu stole from the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
It began when Aisha reacted to Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s statement that he has never stolen government money.
“Stealing money is not the only form of corruption. Nepotism is worse,” Aisha wrote.
A Twitter user subsequently asked about her husband who reportedly stole from the NHIS.
She wrote, “Your husband wey steal for NHIS nko?”
The Twitter user was referring to a claim made by another Twitter user in 2020 that Aisha Yesufu’s husband took 7 cars away with him when he left the NHIS.
Reacting to the allegation, Aisha tweeted: “Make una help me arrest am and jail him! @officialEFCC can’t be so useless that they cannot arrest this my so call ’husband’.”

“Early voting for essential workers.
“Ballot papers should carry pictures of the candidates as well as party logo
