Popular Nigerian activist Aisha Yesufu, has described Nigerians in the diaspora as the ”most mumuish” set of Nigerians.
In a tweet posted on her handle, Aisha wrote;
”The most mumuish sets of Nigerians are the ones in diaspora. Many of them gloat they have escaped but are imprisoned by the needs of those of us left in Nigeria. They work themselves to the bone to transfer billions back to Nigeria. They contribute economically but can’t vote!”
