Says APC candidate too old to rule Nigeria
By Tunde Joshua
Afrobeat musician, Femi Anikulapo Kuti, has corroborated claims by another musician, Tee-Mac Omatshola on the age of the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu
Femi, who is the son of the late legendary musician, Fela Kuti described Tinubu as an old man who is too old to rule Nigeria.
Kuti, who during an interview with Arise News did not disclose who among the presidential candidates he is supporting ahead of 2023, said the country does not need an old man like Bola Ahmed Tinubu who he said is too old to lead Nigeria.
He said he is not ready to waste his time arguing with anyone that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not too old to rule Nigeria, or that their candidates are the best.
Tee- Mac Omatshola had during the week said Tinubu’s real age is 86 years. He said this with the authority of an insider as he claimed to be Tinubu’s in-law.

The popular flautist and former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli also before the APC national convention urged Nigerians not to vote for Tinubu, as the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, saying he was not qualified to be voted as President.
In reaction to a Facebook post by one Yemi Olakitan, Tee Mac said Tinubu was 86 years old, not healthy enough and has many unanswered questions about his age, background and how he made his money!
He said: “Anybody 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-1980s 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 Buhari to the nation in 2015. My advice to the nation is that this man is absolutely not qualified to become our next president.”
