Popular cross-cultural flutist and former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, Tee -Mac Omatshola Iseli, on Wednesday declared the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is too old to lead Nigeria at 86.
Iseli, who said he is an in-law to the candidate as he and the wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, are cousins, stated that Tinubu also had much issues around his integrity.
He was responding to a Facebook post by a blogger, Yemi Olakitan, who had described Tinubu as his choice to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Iseli’s post reads: “Dear Yemi. Any body can choose any candidate, but an intelligent person will ask himself the question: do I choose rightly! Is the man qualified! Is he honest! Does he tell us the truth about his age, background and how he made his money! Is this man healthy enough at 86 to take up the task of a totally run down country? You see Tinubu is my in-law. His wife Remi is my cousin. Her Itsekiri mother and my Itsekiri mother are sisters. I have known Tinubu since the mid 80s personally and even arranged for him to stay in my stepfather’s house ( Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony) in London when he went into exile.
I stopped supporting him and stopped family visits etc when he sold that Buhari to the nation in 2015. My advise to the nation is that this man is absolutely not qualified to become our next president. Respectfully Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli.”
There was no response from Tinubu’s camp.
