Senator Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is not ‘sufficiently’ healthy to be elected Nigeria’s president in 2023.
This is the view of Prof Pat Utomi, a staunch supporter of Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
Speaking on the ‘Politics Today’, a live programme of the Channels TV, Utomi said Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo would have become the best presidential standard-bearer of the APC.
According to him, “I would not be seeking public office at his (Tinubu’s) age. I told my children to confine me if I’m running around after 70.
“Tinubu is not fit. You can see he is ailing. Let’s not lie to ourselves. Let him go through a medical like they do in the US.”
It would be recalled that VP Osibanjo ran for the presidential ticket of APC during the party’s convention. Tinubu emerged victorious.
