Aisha Yesufu, a prominent political analyst and Nigerian activist, emphasized the importance of active citizenship over more activism in the country.
In a tweet from her verified Twitter handle on Sunday morning, she called on Nigerians to become more engaged and proactive in their roles as citizens.
Nigeria Needs Active Citizens, Not Just Activists:
Aisha Yesufu conveyed a strong message in her tweet, stating that Nigeria requires active citizens rather than simply more activists.
She believes that citizens should take a more participatory and responsible approach to shaping the nation’s future.
In her advocacy, she encourages people to go beyond mere activism and actively engage in initiatives that can bring about positive change in the country.
A Call for Active Participation:
As a supporter of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Aisha Yesufu uses her platform to call on Nigerians to be more involved in their civic duties.
She urges them to take an active interest in political and social issues, advocating for informed decision-making and constructive action.
Mocking Those Who Laughed at Peter Obi Supporters:
Aisha Yesufu also takes a swipe at those who once mocked Peter Obi’s supporters during their one million march campaign for him.
She points out the irony that these same individuals are now experiencing the hardship of fuel scarcity, a consequence of the increase in fuel prices.
Many Nigerians, unable to afford transportation, are resorting to walking long distances to save costs.
The Significance of Standing for Something:
In response to the current fuel scarcity situation, Aisha Yesufu reiterates the importance of standing up for meaningful causes.
She believes that those who take a stand for something they believe in are less likely to fall for anything.
This emphasizes the significance of being proactive, informed, and engaged in matters that affect the nation and its citizens.
Aisha Yesufu’s call for more active citizens in Nigeria resonates with her advocacy for responsible civic engagement.
She believes that citizens play a pivotal role in shaping the country’s destiny and addressing critical issues.
Through her social media presence, she encourages Nigerians to take action, stand for what they believe in, and actively participate in shaping a better future for the nation.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
