Aisha Yesufu: A modern-day activist worth emulating

According to Franz Fanon, each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity. The likes of Aisha Yesufu seem to have heeded to Fanon’s creed as in the last five years she has been a voice in the Nigerian society.

The vocal woman who originally is from Agbede, Edo State was born and bred in Kano State, Nigeria and also a Muslim as such many see her as a Hausa Fulani woman.

They might not be wrong though as she could have every right to claim Kano where she was born or Abuja where she currently resides if nuances of state of origin aren’t used in Nigeria.

From the agitations in support of bringing back our Chibok girls in 2014 to endears campaign in Nigeria, Aisha Yesufu has never shied away to speak against injustice, wrong happening, and every other social in Nigeria.

It’s no surprise her photo of unassuming fearlessness in being at the front broke the internet just as that of Alaa Salah did in 2019 enroute agitations against Omar el Bashir in Sudan.

Her attitude and disposition are what every Nigerians should imbibe to eke a functional Nigerian society.

Today, Nigerians face issues of paying huge electricity charges without commiserate value for money. It looks like ensuring Nigerians have meters to avoid huge estimated billing is now a herculean task.

Our public education system is almost comatose as a strike by tertiary education teachers is now a reoccurring syndrome while public primary and secondary schools are a different kettle of fish.

The tendency of an average Nigerian eking a good career in sports without going abroad is another issue which beckons on the question of what’s the Nigerian dream?

Youths unemployment and underemployment is one issue that seems government lacks Idea on how to tackle it head-on.

Aisha Yesufu has indeed become a voice and Nigerians need to emulate her courage in speaking for negative vices in the country to ensure we create the real giant we told Nigeria is in Africa.

I do sincerely hope that after the dust surrounding the end SARS campaign ends the next we should take on is the end of estimated electricity bills and ensuring every Nigerian household is properly metered.

Moreso, going forward Nigerians across the divide of tribe, religion, political affiliation must always rise with one voice to speak for positive trends that will make Nigeria better.
