A co-convener of BringbackOurGirls movement, Aisha Yesufu, on Thursday explained why she is supporting the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the 2023 elections.
In a series of tweets on her Twitter handle, Yesufu said support for Obi was borne out of her confidence in the former Anambra State governor’s capacity to make Nigeria work again.
The activist has been using her social media handles to drum up support for Obi ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
She is also one of the major critics of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Yesufu wrote: “Just so we are clear, my number one job is to criticise Peter Obi’s @PeterObi every move that needs to be criticised. The second is to support him to win the election, noting that she only needed someone that could make Nigeria work.
“My loyalty is to Nigeria, not Peter Obi. I just need someone that can work for Nigeria. Don’t get it mixed up!”
