Aisha Yesufu Urges Citizens to Take Initiative in Protests, Dismisses Dependency on Peter Obi’s Direction

…By Jack Sylva for TDPel Media. Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu, recently discussed the role of citizens and the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the upcoming 2023 election.


During a live chat on YouTube with LP supporters, also known as ‘Obidents’, Yesufu expressed her opinion that it is not solely Peter Obi’s responsibility to urge citizens to protest.

She emphasized that everyone has a part to play in shaping the country’s future, and Peter Obi’s involvement in the election tribunal is significant.

Yesufu urged people to stop making excuses and pointed out that anyone can initiate a protest without relying on the former governor of Anambra State.

Individual Choices and Action

Aisha Yesufu further emphasized that citizens hold the power to decide their own course of action, including participating in protests.

She highlighted that Peter Obi does not need to explicitly instruct individuals to be present at protest sites.

Yesufu stated that as citizens, they have a duty and responsibility to act based on their convictions.


While recognizing that not everyone may choose to engage in street protests, she encouraged people to identify alternative ways to contribute meaningfully to the causes they believe in.

Yesufu urged individuals to take ownership of their decisions rather than constantly seeking external validation or instructions.

Evaluating Tinubu’s Political Strategies

In addition to discussing citizen activism, Aisha Yesufu also commented on the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu in the election.

Contrary to popular opinion, Yesufu argued that Tinubu’s success did not necessarily reflect his master planning abilities.

She asserted that Tinubu’s triumph was primarily due to the utilization of violence and thuggery during the electoral process.

Yesufu further expressed her belief that despite Tinubu’s extensive experience in Nigerian politics, there was nothing exceptional or remarkable about his modus operandi.

Peter Obi’s Impact on the Election Outcome

Addressing the reasons behind Tinubu’s victory, Aisha Yesufu pointed out that the decision of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to field Peter Obi as its presidential candidate played a significant role.

She emphasized that if the PDP had chosen Peter Obi as its candidate, the outcome of the election might have been different.


By highlighting this aspect, Yesufu suggested that the selection of candidates can greatly influence electoral results and shape the political landscape.

Aisha Yesufu’s statements shed light on the importance of citizen involvement in shaping the future of Nigeria and underscore the significance of individual choices and actions.

She encourages citizens to take responsibility for their role in initiating change and emphasizes that political outcomes can be influenced by candidate selection.
