The Nigerian socio-political activist, and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, an advocacy group that brings attention to the abduction of over 200 girls , from a secondary school in Chibok , Nigeria, on 14 April 2014, by the terrorist group Boko Haram, Aisha Yusufu, has released an astonished information about her love life.
This was revealed in a video, where Aisha Yusufu spoke in pidgin ,” Na mi toast my husband.” She said.
Aisha Yusufu was born on the 12th of December, 1974,in Kano State to Edo parents and raised in Kano. She experienced the difficulty of being a girl-child in a heavily patriarchal environment.
According to Aisha Yusufu, it baffles her when she see ladies from 30 – 40 years who are not married, all in the name of waiting for a man to come and approach them for a relationship or marriage. She said, ” their is no need to wait for the man to come, go and look for the man you want to marry.”
She said even though she grew up in a Ghetto, a very difficult environment to live, but that doesn’t stop her from moving forward. Although she faces a lot of insolence on her out looks, but that did not bother her, “because you get a lot of that everyday when you live in Ghetto.” She said.
According to her one of her attribute is to be in control over what she is doing or any situation. She also revealed that no man dated her without her first proposing for the relationship. However, some decline to her proposals, and the one that hurt her most was when she was in secondary school. She wrote a love letter to Uche who decline to her proposals, because he want to focus in his studies.
Aisha also narrated how she met her husband, according to her, she was the one who first approach her husband for a date unlike the usual approach where a man who love you will approach you for a date.
In addition she stated that despite people calling her all sort of names, that doesn’t matter to her, because even if she is refer to as a prostitute; she is a prostitute with only one customer and that’s her husband.
Aisha Yusufu advised ladies not to be ashamed to approach the man they love, for a relationship or marriage.
