Socio-political activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, Aisha Yesufu, has said those against the Southern governors resolution on restructuring and open grazing are on expired drugs.
Yesufu, in a video uploaded on her Twitter handle on Saturday, said nobody has the monopoly of intolerance or self-centredness.
The governors had after their meeting in Asaba last Tuesday called for the restructuring of the country along fiscal federalism, devolution of powers and state policing. They also called on the President to address the nation and convoke a national dialogue to address widespread agitations among various groups in the region.
But the governors’ resolution has been heavily criticised by northerners including Ali Ndume, who is representing Borno South Senatorial District in the red chamber, as well as Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
Reacting to the criticisms , Yesufu lambasted the detractors of the southern governors, saying: “I see some people coming out to say the southern governors do not have a right to make the decision for A, B, C, D.
“The decision that you had as northern governors with what right did you make them? The southern governors do not have a right to make laws in their own states but you have a right to make laws in your own states? In short, the Igbo (Indian Hemp) that you smoke has expired.”
She added: “Nobody has monopoly of intolerance, nobody has monopoly of being selfish, nobody has monopoly of being self-centred; everybody has the capacity to be, that some people don’t do it does not mean anything.”
Yesufu hailed the southern governors for their resolution, saying she was proud of them.
She urged them to increase their meetings like their northern colleagues in order for the country to “move to that Nigeria for all of us, we will start the restructuring that we want.”
