Aisha Yesufu, a Kano-born social critic, has been cautioned by the leader of the CORE ABIA MANDATE group, Comr. Michael Ogonnaya, to redirect her attention away from Abia State. The warning comes in response to Yesufu’s probing questions regarding the financial activities of Governor Alex Otti.
Yesufu’s attempt to criticize Governor Otti in an article titled “Aisha Yesufu Knocks Gov. Otti For Spending N927m On Refreshments, Others” has been labeled as political slander by Ogonnaya. He emphasizes that her focus should remain on her home state, Edo, and questions her involvement in Abia State’s budget performance report.
The statement highlights Yesufu’s alleged evasion of issues in her own state, where, according to Ogonnaya, the government’s financial situation requires scrutiny. The warning underscores that Abia State does not welcome unnecessary distractions, especially from individuals like Yesufu, whom Ogonnaya describes as a “notorious clout chaser.”
Ogonnaya urges Yesufu to address concerns in Edo, insinuating that her rejection and ostracization by her people may be the reason for her focus on Abia. The leader of CORE ABIA MANDATE emphasizes that Charity should begin at home, encouraging Yesufu to direct her probing efforts toward her birthplace, Kano, and her home state, Edo.
Furthermore, the statement dismisses Yesufu’s allegations against Governor Alex Otti, asserting that he is an ordained leader unlike others who allegedly spend public funds recklessly. Ogonnaya suggests that Yesufu’s scrutiny is targeted specifically at the southeast and Abia State.
The public is informed that Aisha Yesufu’s attempts to link Governor Alex Otti with typical politicians are labeled as fallacious, malicious, and unacceptable by CORE ABIA MANDATE. The warning concludes with a clear message that Abia State will not tolerate such behavior from Yesufu or anyone else.
