“Sickness can be on anybody, nobody is wishing the president bad. The fact that he is sick doesn’t mean he is going to die today or tomorrow. Somebody that is as healthy as I am now can drop dead. It is life!
“How long are we going to wait and keep watching everything go in disarray. Who is going to sign the budget, we don’t know. The report on Babachir, what is happening to it?
“Why are we being held to ransom?” In a direct speech to the president, Yesufu said: “President Muhammadu Buhari, you have gotten the best in this world. A lot of things that you have, most people cannot even dream of.
“You have being president twice, you said it yourself, you have reached the peak of your career as a military man and as a politician.
“Can you allow each and every one of us as Nigerians be able to reach the peak of our careers? Can you just take some time off, take care of yourself. May God give you good health.

On his part, Isioma Chigbolu, agreed with her, saying: Very well said my sister, we have been saying it all along, but if you are Igbo they call you names , this a northerner, a good woman who cares about Nigeria moving forward.
“But some fools are condoning this so called stupid cabal holding Nigeria hostage, if Buhari can not do his duties as president , let him heed this woman’s call Aisha Yusufu and resign.
“Take care of your health and indeed if you must be an adviser to the new president Osinbajo if that is the case, but this acting president nonesense won’t work if these idiots who don’t care about Nigeria, but themselves won’t let Osinbajo be a truly acting president, it is just ridiculous that we are in this state in Nigeria.
Tunde Husein Oyanta on the other hand disagreed with her, he said: “This is the work of pdpigs, Nigerians are not fools and it’s better you return the money you collect from them. We know it’s part of preparation for 2019, their believe is that the more Buhari is still the presidential candidate of Apc they do not have chance.
