Why Tinubu Cannot Lead Nigeria – Pete Edochie

Nollywood veteran, Pete Edochie has stated that presidential aspirants like Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot become the president of Nigeria because they are too old.

Edochie shared his thoughts while speaking with BBC Igbo. He said that it is high time the former governor resign considering he has been in power for a long time.

He also condemned the marginalization of the Igbos and their inability to produce a president since the country attained democracy.

He explained that Tinubu has to leave power so that youths who are stronger and healthier can take over and move the country forward.

According to him: “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”.
