Aisha Yesufu, one of the top shots in the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group, the group in the forefront of the push for the release of abducted Chibok secondary school students, is not relenting in her vitriolic attack of Presidet Muhammadu Buhari, and his administration.
Recently, when the adminitration declared a public holiday for the Eid el Maulud, she described it as a case of “competitive religiousity,” suggesting it was not a recognised practice of the faith.
After the President spoke up six days into the excruciating fuel scarcity in the country, Yesufu went verbally ballistic describing his comments as hypocritical.
“Dear President Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari your tweet below says it all about your hypocritical stand.
“Your tears, words, tweets were never about Nigeria but about your need to come & enjoy the perks of power.
“You have failed as the Minister of Petroleum & more so as the President. She tweeted
The BBOG co-convener said the president has failed as a minister of petroleum for turning deaf ear to the lingering fuel crisis situation officially.
According to her, President Buhari is swayed by power therefore ‘lacking in wisdom, integrity and values despite his age.’
“What type of President are you? You have not had the decency to address the Nation on the crippling effect of the fuel scarcity that many are suffering. You may have Kano people in your pocket you sure dont have the rest of us there.
“At your age one would have expected you have seen it all and not be swayed by the temporary insanity of power but alas age does not mean wisdom, integrity, values and character.
“So what has happened now that is different from 2nd March 2015 when you made that tweet during fuel scarcity? That you became President? What a shame! Power that is transient? Somebody was there before you and somebody would be there after you. What’s the big deal
“People are suffering and all that concerns you is the fawning you get and revel in the access to Presidential jets and pictures of you in overcoat with your incompetent sycophants toeing the line
“I don’t blame you i blame the timid, docile and irresponsible citizens of Nigeria that would fight themselves on the queues at the filling station instead of coming to Aso villa to fight you. Shamefully I am one of the citizenry. Be warned one day we would no longer take it!
“Your impunity and arrogance of treating the people of Nigeria with disdain would definitely come back and haunt you when you see yourself alone without the sycophants
“Lee Kuan Yew is your mate. Nelson Mandela is your mate. They spent their years as leaders thinking about the next generation and building legacy. You are spending your time thinking about the next election while enjoying bagpipes and ceremonial welcome. What a waste!
“Nigerians cried over killings and molestation by @PoliceNG you turned deaf ears. Fuel scarcity you equally have turned deaf ears. We are counting! We would remember! Its a debt we would not forget. Our day to turn deaf ears too would come God willing!
“Mr President the first thing you should do about this fuel scarcity is to fire yourself as Minister of Petroleum and get a competent hand to be one, that’s if you would recognise competence even if it hits you in the face!”
