Critic of Muhammadu Buhari government, Aisha Yesufu, has accused Nigerian politicians of taking the country to the brink with their misgovernance.
The human rights activist, who advised Nigerians to focus on their shared problems in the interest of the country, scoffed at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in a statement on Monday.
She said the onslaught on the candidacy of Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) by the members of the dominant parties was meant to deflect the attention of Nigerians from important issues.
She therefore urged Nigerians to take advantage of the ongoing registration of voters to secure their PVCs and fight against the enemies of the country.
“APC and PDP are just different in names, they are united in the same devilish philosophy. They are attacking supporters of Peter Obi in order to derail Nigerians from taking decisive steps. That’s why they’re not fighting themselves. They are similar in all ways.
“When they say you should not waste your votes, it’s deceitful advice. You should not waste your lives by allowing your votes to be wasted. I would rather waste my vote than allowing my life to be wasted. If any of PDP or APC members ask you not to waste your votes, ask them what they did with your votes in 2019.
“Take charge, Nigerians. It’s your rights to vote wisely. Get your PVCs. These leaders don’t care. Now is the time to change our situations for the better. Don’t be deceived.”
