Popular social rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has revealed that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will never be her president, she also explained why she made the statement.
Yesufu made this revelation in a ‘Mic On’ podcast titled, ‘The PEPC Judgment: Hopes met or dashed’ hosted by Channels TV presenter, Seun Okinbaloye, on Saturday night.
Yesufu, who is a supporter of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi in the just-concluded General Election, was quoted as saying that Tinubu allegedly rigged his way into the presidency and on that basis will never be seen as her president.
“Tinubu did not win the 2023 presidential election and will never be my president because he rigged his way to be declared the one with the majority votes. And as for me, that is a political coup. That is a civilian coup and it is the mandate of the people that was stolen.
“My focus and other Nigerians now is to ensure getting the mandate back.”
She added that even the Presidential Election Petition Court that gave the verdict that President Tinubu lawfully won the election held on February 25 was wrong.
“I stayed for over 13 hours in the court and I heard all the judgement read by the Supreme Court justices. It was all a movie.
“And there was a trailer before the movie, it began when the former Supreme Court justice, Mary Odili spoke. It already preempted what we expected.”
She further said that the whole process began getting fishy when PEPC declined that the proceedings be aired live from the beginning until the judgment day and failed to show the faces of the justices.
“There was a need for people to see how it has been going rather than just hearing the judgment only.
“The joy in the faces of the judges showed that they were biased. They acted more like counsels to the respondents (President Tinubu, All Progressives Congress and VP Kashim Shettima),” she alleged.
