Right activist and co-founder of the Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG movement, Aisha Yesufu has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s peace mission to Mali saying he ought to have set his house in order before looking to do same elsewhere.
Aisha, known for her constant crusades for social justice and good governance noted that with the worsening security situation in the country, the president should have known that leaving for Mali is the least expectations of Nigerians who look up to him for result driven leadership.
In a two and a half minutes video, the right activist likens the president to a blogger “who has since been sending Nigerians, pictures and videos of him wearing a mask.”
In her word, “Our travel blogger is back in business as he has jetted out to Mali. Anything that will make him be on the plane and anything that has to do with travelling outside the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will do it. He is there to talk about the political situation, unrest and everything in the Francophone country. Meanwhile his country is boiling. His country has practically fallen but that doesn’t concern President Buhari. All that concerns him is an opportunity to stand on the steps of the Presidential plane and wave. They are already sending the pictures to us and that is all that matters!”
Aisha did not stop there, she went further saying, it doesn’t matter to the commander in chief that Boko Haram insurgents have just murdered some Nigerians whose lives and properties he is supposed to protect, and it doesn’t matter that citizens are being killed everyday. It doesn’t matter that security agents are being killed all over Nigeria. There’s so much insecurity in the land, so much poverty and hunger in the land. But all these don’t matter. What matters is that the opportunity of travelling came and he grabbed it.
“His being a president is to enjoy the perks of office and never take any responsibility. Do you remember those aid workers taken by Boko Haram and so many Nigerian’s that have been executed? They send gruesome videos hoping that can shock Buhari but they are mistaken” she bemoaned, adding that “When there is an opportunity to fly, he jumps at it but you won’t see him when it is time to lead and lead from the front.”
