Pete Edochie Slams Tinubu “You Are Too Old & Too Weak To Lead Nigeria”

Veteran Nollywood actor  Pete Edochie, has bastardized APC leader, Bola Tinubu’s presidential ambition, stating that the one-time governor of Lagos is too old to run for president.

He revealed this during an interview with BBC Igbo programme.

Here is what he said in his reply to Tinubu’s candidacy for 2023 presidency:

“Many people like Tinubu are too old and too weak to run for president. He (Tinubu) has been in power for a long time, until he was made the leader of the APC.

“But he should leave the position for those who are younger and healthier; let’s be honest.”

Edochie also lamented that Nigeria has not had more than one Ìgbò head of state since the attainment of independence in 1960.

“Ìgbò, Hausa, and Yorùbá, are the major ethnic groups in Nigeria. Only once in the history of Nigeria has it emerged that an Ìgbò person became the head of state in Nigeria”, he said.

“That was (former military head of state) Aguiyi Ironsi, during the military government and his headship was short-lived. Since then, the North and the Yorùbá have been sharing power between themselves, apart from Goodluck Jonathan, who isn’t even Ìgbò.”

Edochie, who described Ndìgbò as resilient people, said Nigeria needs Ìgbò ingenuity and sound leadership. He also stated that having an Ìgbò as president will end looting and socio-economic woes, added that Ìgbò can deliver strategic leadership that will transform Nigeria.

“Why has power not returned to the Ìgbò people? Is there a plot by the political elites to sideline the Southeast? I’ve lived in the north. I speak Hausa. But it’s long overdue for Nigeria to have a leader of Ìgbò extraction.”

“The problem in Nigeria is greed. Leadership is dominated by Northerners, but 60 years after independence, we’ve not ended the electricity problem, when coal-based Oji River supplied power to the whole east before the civil war”, he added.

    Tinubu is still better than atiku, obi and buhari combined.
    He is not perfect but still better. Even the ibos will benefit under him.
    See what he did to Lagos.
