Prof. Pat Utomi said that the ambition of the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari is a disadvantage to Nigeria.
Utomi, a chieftain of the Labour Party, made this assertion while featuring as guest on Channels TV Politics Today on Monday.
He based his views on anecdote about Tinubu struggling with health issues and the APC chieftain’s advancement in age adding that the presidential candidate’s claim to be the next in line to govern the nation is ridiculous.
His word, “I don’t think the ambition of Tinubu is for the good of Nigeria. If I was his age, I wouldn’t be seeking political office at his age, certain things are good for certain times. Why is it his turn? What about other people in Nigeria?
“If there is any ‘Emilokan’ that is wrong, it is the Emilokan of Emilokan because Ko’kan (Not his turn).
“Our country has suffered so much from having ailing leaders and that was why the vice president stepped up because he thought there was a challenge to that principle and direction.
“Tinubu is not fit, physically you can see he is ailing, you can see it, let’s be true to ourselves, let him go through a medical that will be made public in Nigeria.”
