An old tweet by Nigerian activist Aisha Yesufu, a strong supporter of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi, praising All Progressive Congress President-elect Bola Tinubu, has sparked outrage on social media.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that Aisha is strongly supporting Tinubu’s bid to reclaim his ‘stolen mandate,’ after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Tinubu the winner of the presidential election after he received the most votes in the 2023 general elections.
Tinubu received 8,794,726 votes, defeating Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who received 6,984,520 and 6,101, 533 votes, respectively, and both filed petitions to overturn Tinubu’s victory.
Despite her previous stance, old tweets from the activist showed her praising Tinubu’s strategic planning, tenacity, and consistency in building his party, the APC.
One of her tweets read;
Tinubu has shown what consistency can do. He builds the opposition to what it is today. Strategic decision very key.
Another one reads;
Have you seen what tinubu has done? That’s delayed gratification. Slowly building his party. One day
The tweets have sparked reactions amongst Nigerians on social media who accused the activist of standing in opposition to someone she had once shown support for his hard work and tenacity.
