Aisha Yesufu reacts to South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa ‘ignoring’ Tinubu during his inauguration

Co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement Aisha Yesufu has reacted to a video of President Bola Tinubu seemingly being overlooked by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa during his inauguration.

The video that surfaced social media is captioned “Ashiwaju looking lost as Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa ignores him while thanking others for gracing his inauguration!”

The perceived snub has sparked outrage on social media, with many expressing frustration and dismay, whilst others took to social media to berate President Ramaphosa for ignoring the president of Africa’s most populous nation at his inauguration.

Reacting the 50-year-old via her microblogging platform, X account, wrote: “Everyone knows Nigerian does not have a President. We can fool ourselves all we want. No Nigerian President that is President will be relegated to the second row seat in an African context!”

One commenter sarcastically remarked, “They will come back with a video that they greeted earlier on o,” hinting at potential damage control. Another simply shared laughing emojis, suggesting disbelief or amusement at the situation.”

A more critical reaction came from a user who stated, “Avoiding ex-convict,” reflecting a harsh judgment of Tinubu’s past. Another commenter noted, “Might be an interesting oversight tho, cos he was at the back,” suggesting the incident could be unintentional due to Tinubu’s seating position.”
