Tinubu’s in-law advises Nigerian not to vote for him in 2023
Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli, a flutist and former president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), has urged Nigerians to refrain from supporting Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president in the 2023 elections, on the grounds that he is older than he claims and is therefore unqualified to lead the nation.
Tee Mac, who revealed that he was Tinubu’s in-law, said that the former governor of Lagos’ entire life was too wrapped in secrecy to be handed the responsibility of governing Nigeria.
In a Facebook comment in response to a post by one Yemi Olakitan who endorsed the politician, the musician claimed that Tinubu is 86 years old rather than 70.
As a result, he pleaded with Nigerians not to support him, emphasizing that given the many unanswered questions surrounding his life, he was unfit to serve as president.
He noted, for instance, that Tinubu’s age, origin, and source of income are still the subject of debates.
“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? Did 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 on 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.”
