Nollywood legend Pete Edochie has stated that presidential contenders such as the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are too elderly to be Nigerian president.
Edochie told BBC Igbo that the former Lagos State governor has been in power for a long time and should consider stepping down.
The elderly actor also bemoaned the political marginalization of Southeasterners and their failure to produce a president since the country’s restoration to democracy.
He stated that the Asiwaju of Lagos should step down so that young people who are healthy and competent of driving the country ahead may take control.
He 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”.
