Aisha Yesufu Bombs Buhari Again
Aisha Yesufu, human rights activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Group, has accused Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari of being the number one person that gives hate speeches in the country.
She made her submission at the social media town hall meeting organized by Africa Independent Television (AIT) on Monday, February 3rd 2020.
Naija News reports the meeting had in several dignitaries including Dr. Ahmed Lawan, Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
When attendees were given the opportunity to voice their opinions on the controversial hate speech bill, Aisha Yesufu declared that no other person is as guilty of hate speeches in Nigeria as the President whom she referred to as Major General.
“I want to say something here that as citizens of this nation, we matter. A situation where we have a town hall and we have the senate president come in here and speak to us and leaves before he hears from us is not acceptable. Please let’s correct that.
“If you are talking about hate speech, the number one person who gives hate speech in this country is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Rtd. Major General Mohammed Buhari; when he called the youths of Nigeria lazy, that was hate speech.
“You sat down here today and told us everything about what is wrong in Nigeria, about the killings. It is not caused by hate speech; it is caused by the incompetence of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and also the Federal government’‘ she said.

She said this among other things when she appeared as a panelist on Tuesday, 4th February at the BBC World Question forum which held at the Muson center In Lagos State.
