Nigerian multitalented journalist Mojeed Jamiu has come out to drop his two cents on the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Mojeed Jamui stated that a lot of people are conscious of the age of Tinubu who has declared his interest to run for president come 2023. He also pointed out that irrespective of the fact that he is old, he has the ability to pick the best brains when it comes to leadership. For instance, Tinubu was the one that handpicked Babajide Fashola, Aregbesola, former governor of Osun state, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state, current vice president Yemi Osibanjo and others. From just working with him the above-mentioned people are now occupying high seats and they have been doing well.
