Aisha Yesufu, a human rights activist, has made a commitment to persist in her support for Peter Obi, the candidate of Labour Party, LP, in his pursuit of the presidency.
Yesufu clarified that her endorsement of Obi is not to urge him to become an Imam of a mosque, but to become the president of Nigeria.
She emphasized that Obi is the ideal candidate capable of leading Nigeria out of the grasp of those who are determined to hinder the progress of the country.
Posting on X, Yesufu wrote: “Your own’ in politics is not one you share same religion, tribe or gender with. ‘Your own’ is one who can give you good governance.
“You see Mr Peter Obi @PeterObi, I will NEVER support him to be Imam of a mosque, but as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he has my 100% support even if I end up being his only supporter.
“If he wants to run a thousand times, I will support him a thousand times. I will put in the work a thousand times and more. For in him is the person I see that is willing to put in the donkey work necessary to wrestle Nigeria from the jaws of those who have held it down.
“My focus is on my effort. I have no business quitting because the win was stolen. I am focused on how to ensure that the win is not stolen next time. Giving up is never an option. We die here.”
