A former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Omatshola Iseli also known as Tee Mac, has given reasons why Nigerians should not vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the forthcoming election.
While reacting to a Facebook post by a writer, Yemi Olakitan, the renowned flautist said claimed that the APC presidential candidate is 86 years old and unhealthy to rule the nation.
Tee Mac further claimed that Tinubu has unanswered questions about his wealth and background.
The former PMAN president stated, “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?”
The flautist also claimed that the APC flagbearers is his in-law. Tee Mac stated that he stopped supporting and paying Tinubu family visits when he sold President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians in 2015.
He added that despite the family ties, he is not supporting the political ambition of Tinubu to rule Nigerians
“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,” he wrote.
Tee Mac, in 2007, was elected president of the Musician Union of Nigeria PMAN.
