Veteran actor Pete Edochie played his role as APC leader and presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, who was running in the 2023 general election.

The 75-year-old actor said the APC leader was too old to run for president.

Pete Edochie said it on Friday, April 1 at a BBC Igbo town hall meeting watched by PREMIUM TIMES.

Tinubu, who turned 70 on Tuesday, is among the favorites to succeed Muhammadu Buhari, whose term as president ends in May 2023.

Tinubu says he is running for president in 2023 to bring hope to Nigerians.

Pete Edochie spoke about Tinubu’s interest in running for office and gave reasons why the presidential candidate is not strong enough to become the next President of Nigeria.

He said: “It has been a long time since Tinubu had any ambition for this post. From the moment the APC was formed, there seemed to be an agreement that he would be the next president after Buhari.

“If you look at this person, he is very old, let’s be honest with ourselves, today I am 75, just look at me: I look healthy, but if I tell you how much I spend on medicine, you pity me. So it will be a shame to say, okay, let’s support this man for this position, and if he does run, he will spend most of his time abroad in medical treatment. “, did he declare.
