Nollywood veteran, Pete Edochie has said presidential aspirants like the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC can’t be Nigerian president since they are too old.

Speaking with BBC Igbo, Edochie said the former Lagos State governor has been in power for quite a while and ought to consider leaving.

The aged actor likewise discredited the underestimation of Southeasterners strategically and their failure to create a president since the nation got back to a majority rule government.

He said the Asiwaju of Lagos ought to leave power so the youths who are healthier and are fit for moving the nation forward will dominate.

He said, “Many people like Tinubu are too old and too weak to run for the presidency. He has been in power for a long time until he was made the leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

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

“Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba are the major ethnic groups in the country. Only once in the history of Nigeria has an Igbo person become the head of state in Nigeria.

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