Aisha Yesufu, a prominent Nigerian activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls movement, is trending on Twitter in Nigeria today for speaking out against insecurity in the country.
Yesufu has been a vocal critic of the Nigerian government’s handling of security issues, particularly in the northern region of the country where terrorist groups such as Boko Haram and bandits have carried out attacks on civilians.
In a recent tweet, Yesufu criticized the government’s response to the kidnapping of 136 students from an Islamic school in Niger state.
She wrote, “It is not that the government can’t do something about insecurity in the country, it is that they don’t want to. They are all about power and position and care nothing about the lives being lost.”
Her comments have sparked a conversation on Twitter, with many Nigerians expressing their support for her stance on insecurity.
Some have also called for the government to take action to address the security challenges facing the country. Yesufu has been a prominent voice in Nigeria’s civil society movement for many years, advocating for the rights of women and girls, and speaking out against corruption and human rights abuses.
Her outspokenness has earned her both admiration and criticism, but she remains committed to her causes.
As insecurity continues to be a major concern for Nigerians, activists like Aisha Yesufu are using their platforms to demand action from the government and to hold leaders accountable for their actions.
