Yesufu Blasted Over Criticizing Tinubu

Human rights Activist, Aisha Yesufu has been blasted over criticisms of President Bola Tinubu during his visit to South Africa.

The Presidential spokesman, Bayo Onanuga, who responded to Yesufu tagged her and her supporters as “an uncouth horde of pessimists” who remain embittered over their candidate’s third-place finish in the 2023 elections.

Yesufu alleged on Twitter that Tinubu had been disgraced and slot gacor hari ini shunned by South African President Ramaphosa during an inauguration event following his re-election.

Onanuga contrasted Yesufu’s actions with those of the supporters of the second-place candidate, accusing her of making snap decisions and having a persistently unfavourable attitude towards Tinubu.

Senior Special Assistant to Tinubu on New Media O’tega Ogra also weighed in on the criticism, calling Yesufu’s actions “crassly ignorant” and motivated more by a desire for social media recognition than by genuine involvement.

Ogra’s said, “Aisha, have the constitutionally guaranteed right to express yourself, but your consistent display of crass ignorance and shameful behavior, seemingly aimed at garnering likes and retweets, in the name of your disdain and hatred (which you profess at any given opportunity) for Nigeria is shameful to say the least.

“For the record: 1. That first row at today’s inauguration was reserved for South African kings/royalty. 2. The South African President wasn’t expected to start greeting dignitaries at the time of the video you shared and he was respectfully recalled to the podium by the inauguration compere (see video below). 3. Immediately after President Ramaphosa finished the anthem, he went ahead to greet the visiting presidents who were all seated in the second row (similar to the way visiting presidents were seated in the third row during Nigeria’s own inauguration on May 29, 2023…).
