Former governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is qualified to run for President and there is no evidence that he’s suffering from dementia.
Nnamani said this in an apparent reaction to a video showing some members of the Pyrate Confraternity singing and mocking Tinubu for his old age.
In a statement, the Senator described their action as foolish, wicked and callous.
He wrote, “Fashola, Osinbajo, Aregbosola, Fayemi, etc. All first class with A-game always. I vigorously oppose, protest and detest the shameless campaigns and parody targeting Tinubu’s health.
“As a Health worker, I am amazed by the ignorance, foolishness, wickedness and callousness of these idiotic operators.
“I believe they are unwarranted, extremely unprofessional, and have no place in our polity. As the GenZ grow and Nigeria merges with the new world, they will cry at the foibles of their progenitors. Get it folks, life is turn by turn.
“Since we all desire a better Nigeria, our politics should be grounded in facts and reliable evidence. This is the only way we can advance this nation. Ahmed Bola Tinubu is the MOST successful Governor in modern Nigeria bar none.
“While my vote is covered by the Umbrella per my Party PDP and our Candidate, HE Atiku Abubakar, I take a bow for the hardest working Politico of this generation. He patiently paid his dues.
“Guess what, the Igbo are not going anyway. Rather in the spirit of their fathers and forefathers more are pouring into Lagos every day. Tinubu is qualified to run for president of Nigeria in 2023 as there is no evidence that he has dementia”.
