Nigerian veteran flutist, Tee Mac, sparked discussion on social media after he expressed his opinion of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate.
Since he and Remi Tinubu are cousins, the ex-president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) brought to light that they are in-laws, but he is no longer a supporter of Tinubu’s presidential campaign.
Tee Mac revealed this in a Facebook comment in response to Yemi Olakitan, who expressed his support for the APC presidential candidate.
He also disclosed that Bola Tinubu is 86 years old, therefore he does not qualify to contest for the presidency.
“Any body can choose any candidate, but an intelligent person will ask himself the question: do I choose rightly? Is the man qualified? Is he honest? Did he tell us the truth about his age, background and how he made his money? Is this man healthy enough at 86 to take up the task of a totally run down country?
You see, Tinubu is my in-law. His wife Remi is my cousin. Her Itsekiri mother and my Itsekiri mother are sisters. I have known Tinubu since the mid 1980s personally and even arranged for him to stay in my stepfather’s house (Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony) in London, when he went on exile.
I stopped supporting him and stopped family visits etc when he sold that Buhari to the nation in 2015. My advice to the nation is that this man is absolutely not qualified to become our next president.”
