Veteran Nigerian actor, Pere Edochie has stated that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is too old to run for the seat of the presidency because he is too old.

According to Pete Edochie, Political aspirants like Tinubu are too old and weak as he added that the Jagaban should leave the position for younger candidates who are still young and vibrant.

The actor also addressed the issue of power which is yet to return “to the Southeast people” as he acknowledges that “it’s long overdue for Nigeria to have a leader of Igbo extraction”.

In his full words, Pete Edochie said;

“Many people like Tinubu are too old and too weak to run for the presidency. He has been in power for a long time until he was made the leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

“But he should leave the position for those who are younger and healthier. Let’s be honest.

“Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba are the major ethnic groups in the country. Only once in the history of Nigeria has an Igbo person become the head of state in Nigeria.

“Why has power not returned to the Southeast people? Is there a plot by the political elites to sideline the South-East? I’ve lived in the North. I speak Hausa. But it’s long overdue for Nigeria to have a leader of Igbo extraction”.
