The former president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Tee Mac says the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, is not qualified to be Nigeria’s president in 2023.

The flutist, also known as Omatshola Iseli, gave his opinion while reacting to a post shared on Facebook by a writer, Yemi Olakitan, who declared his support for the former Lagos governor.
In the comment section, Tee Mac said everyone has the right to choose any candidate, but Tinubu is unfit to rule Nigeria because of the source of his wealth, his age, and overall background.
The renowned musician also claimed Tinubu, his brother-in-law, is 86-year-old contrary to the 70 the APC presidential candidate has been displaying in the public.
Tee Mac said he stopped visiting Tinubu after he sold President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians in 2015, adding that he will not support his in-law’s ambition to rule Nigeria.
He wrote, “Anybody 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 into 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. Respectfully Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli.”
KanyiDaily recalls that a former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi said the delegates who sold their votes to Bola Tinubu at the APC presidential primary are now regretting their actions.
