Aisha Yesufu, co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement, says Taaooma should not have apologised for meeting Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Taaooma was among a delegation of skit makers who visited the vice-president under the aegis of the Nigeria Skits Industry Awards (NSIA) at the presidential villa on Wednesday.

The development had sparked heated discussion on social media platforms, as many Nigerians called out all the skit makers that honoured the invitation.

Amid the widespread criticism, Taaooma, born Maryam Apaokagi, had apologised for agreeing to be a part of the delegation.

“Hey guys, I’m apologising once again. I had clear intentions and nothing more,” she had written.

But in a Twitter post, Aisha said the comedienne did nothing wrong to warrant her earlier apology.

The activist also said what mattered was the intention of those who visited the vice-president, adding that there are several ways to advocate for good governance.

“Dear @_Taaooma. You do not need to apologise to anyone! You did not do anything wrong by having a meeting with the VP. There are different ways of achieving something,” she wrote.

Dear @_Taaooma
You do not need to apologise to anyone! You did not do anything wrong by having a meeting with the VP.
There are different ways of achieving something. It is never one way and it is okay whatever way one chooses.
Intentions are what count and you know yours!

“It is never one way and it is okay whatever way one chooses. Intentions are what count and you know yours!

“Remember the Prophet (SAW) said Actions are judged according to intentions and that is all that matters. Your intentions are what should matter to you. What people think or say must never matter. What we feel alone with our thoughts is what should matter the most.”

Aisha said people should stop “fighting themselves” over issues bordering on involvement in democratic process and think about how to improve the system.

“Have you ever seen politicians fighting themselves when any of them associate with you? Stop majoring in the minor! Focus on the work ahead. Get 50% youth into the legislative arm of government and begin to call the shots!” she added.
