The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is unfit to rule the country because of ill-health, the Igbo Elders Consultative Forum, has said.
According to The Punch, the organisation said that only people who were not well informed, or have lost sanity, would vote for Tinubu.
The chairman of IECF and former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, stated these in a statement released on Tuesday night from the United States, with about one week to the official commencement of campaigns.
The polity has been heated in the buildup to the 2023 presidential election, especially with regards to the readiness and health status of the frontline candidates. At the centre of this is Tinubu, the ex-Governor of Lagos State.
While some people claim that the 70-year-old ex-Governor is unfit for the presidency, others believe he is healthy and fit.
Recall that Obi had, in a viral video, claimed that Tinubu is not physically fit for the office of president but that most people around him are supporting his ambition because of the money they will get from him.

Ezeife was reacting to a recent report published by The Punch on Monday, September 12 that about two weeks after his visit to the vice presidential candidate of APC, Kashim Shettima, the Igbo Elders Consultative Forum which he chairs had been seriously divided.
