Nigerian flutist, Tee Mac Iseli, has revealed that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), is 86 years old.
Tee Mac, ex-President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), made the disclosure on Facebook while airing his opinion on why Tinubu is not qualified to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The veteran flutist disclosed that though he and Tinubu were related by marriage, it was important for an ‘intelligent person’ to interrogate Tinubu’s candidacy.
According to him, there was so much about the former Lagos governor that is shrouded in secrecy, particularly his age, background and source of wealth.
He wrote: “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-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 advice to the nation is that this man is absolutely not qualified to become our next president.”
