A former Nigerian Minister of Works and member of the country’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adeseye Ogunlewe says age is irrelevant when citizens set out to choose their next president in 2023.
Mr Ogunlewe, a former lawmaker stated this on Wednesday when he featured on ARISE News and made a case for the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu to clinch Nigeria’s top job.
He was reacting to the position of a former Military Head of State Ibrahim Babangida, that Nigeria’s next president in 2023 must be individuals in their 60s.
Babangida said such persons should have deep knowledge of the economy, must have contacts across the nation and must have been traversing the geo-political zones, marketing their acceptability and capacity.
For Ogunlewe, there’s no better candidate that fits the description better than the former Lagos state Governor, Tinubu.
