Tinubu’s in-law reveals his real age, said he’s not 70
Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli, a renowned flutist and former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), has advised Nigerians against voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential flagbearer in the 2023 race, Bola Tinubu, declaring he was older than he professed and thus unfit to lead the country.
Tee Mac, who admitted was an in-law to Tinubu, pointed out that the former Lagos governor’s total existence was too shrouded in secrecy to be given the job of leading Nigeria.
The musician, while responding to a post shared on Facebook by one Yemi Olakitan, who was declaring his support for the politician, claimed that Tinubu was 70 years as circulated but 86.
Consequently, he prompted Nigerians not to elect him, emphasizing that he was not eligible to take up the mantle of the country’s president regarding so many lined up unanswered questions surrounding his life.
He pointed out, for instance, that the arguments encompassing Tinubu’s age, background, and how he made his money remained unresolved.
In his words: “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?” Tee Mac said.
The flutist further noted he stopped visiting Tinubu after he coerced Nigerians to vote President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, adding that even as his in-law, he won’t endorse political desire to rule Nigeria at this time.
He continued, “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,” he wrote.
