The All Progressives Congress APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu, is mentally and physically fit to be Nigeria’s President, the party’s chieftain in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe has said.
Igbokwe, a former spokesman for APC in Lagos, argued that 69-year-old Tinubu, is not older than the current President of the United States, Joe Biden, 79; and his predecessor, Donald Trump, 75.
Recall that Tinubu, on January 10, visited President Muhammadu Buhari, and announced to State House correspondents that he had informed the President of his intention to contest the presidential election in 2023.
When asked whether Tinubu is physically fit for the office of the President, Igbokwe said, “This kind of question will always come. When you get to the US, the number one democratic nation, you’ve seen Trump, you know his age, you’ve Joe Biden, you know his age. Age has nothing to do with it, it’s just a number.
“So, he (Tinubu) has the capacity, he is coming to the table with a lot of experience and you cannot ignore that. What we should do is to pray for him. I don’t think he is older than Biden, I don’t think he is older than the former President Trump.”
“He is 69, that’s his age. Even if he is 70, he is qualified, even if he is 80, he is qualified. So long as he is physically fit and he has the mental alertness to do the job,” Igbokwe added on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’ monitored by The our correspondent.
