Yesufu Needs To Resign

Aisha Yesufu is painting BBOG in bad light, she needs to step aside - Onochie

The presidency has officially responded to the recent call by BBOG co-covener, Aisha Yesufu, asking President Buhari to step aside due to his illness. 

In an open letter to Yesufu posted on her Facebook page, the personal assistant to President Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie advised the social activist to step aside. 

According to Onochie, Yesufu is....
painting BBOG in a bad light and needs to get seek help and get busy with other things.

“Your childish tantrum and incoherent ranting at President Buhari were totally uncalled for especially as it is less than two weeks since 83 of the Chibok girls, gained their freedom, under the government of Muhammadu Buhari and yes, Acting President Osinbajo. Over the nearly two years since the inception of this government, you have turned the campaign on its head and the campaign is taking a personal and malicious dimension. That's what long campaigns do to those who set out to engage in campaigns with personal and selfish motives embedded,” Onochie wrote.

She accused Yesufu of getting agitated when the Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, launched a book in honour of the missing girls and donated all the proceeds to the Chibok and the Buni Yadi parents because she (Aisha Yesufu) was not carried along. 

She wrote: “You obviously have a skewed view of your place in our nation. You are not the one who decides how people render support to others. “You have lost touch with the reality that how we contribute to the advocacy, differ from person to person. Again, you began to forget that BBOG is not a franchise and so you do not have the exclusive rights to run the campaign.

 “You lost the ability to respect, appreciate and accommodate others' styles and contributions towards the campaign to bring our girls home.” The presidential aide lamented that Yesufu had turned the BBOG campaign platform into a personal business venture. She continued: “Are you not pleased that the President Buhari led government is recovering the girls? Are you afraid of what shape your life would take if all the girls were recovered and the campaign folds up? 

“Whats your real reason for wanting President Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo our of the way? Is there a sinister motive that you are hiding from all of us? Venting your anger in the way you did in the video, clearly suggests that you had expected something to happen that would bring about the end of the Buhari/Osinbajo Administration but that thing did not happen. Could it be the much touted Coup de tat? Just asking!”
