In a recent interview with Channels TV, Professor Usman Yusuf made allegations against former Lagos Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, stating that the crowd at Tinubu’s political rally was rented from Kano and transported in buses by the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
According to Professor Yusuf, the people are fed up with such practices and the desperation of politicians to win at all costs. He called on the political elite to stop exploiting the masses and instead focus on addressing the issues that affect the common people.
The allegations made by Professor Yusuf have sparked a heated debate on social media, with some supporting his claims and others refuting them. Tinubu has not yet made a public statement regarding the allegations.
This development comes amid growing discontent among the public over the state of politics in Nigeria, with many calling for an end to the culture of rent-a-crowd and vote-buying. There have also been calls for greater transparency and accountability in the political process.
The outcome of this situation remains to be seen, but it is clear that the people of Nigeria are looking for genuine leadership and a new direction for their country. As the 2023 elections approach, it remains to be seen whether the political elite will heed the call of the people or continue with business as usual.
The article concludes by reiterating the importance of free and fair elections in ensuring the democratic process remains intact, and the need for political leaders to be held accountable for their actions.
