“You would be too old to rule Nigeria in 2027, shelve your ambition” — Bode George advises Atiku

Chief Bode George, a former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Deputy National Chairman has appealed to ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to shelve his 2027 presidential ambition, saying that he would be 81 years old by then and too old to govern Nigeria.

George made this appeal while appearing on Arise Television on Thursday, begging Atiku to allow younger Nigerians to rule the country.

In his words, “My brother Atiku Abubakar was 77 years old last year, and by 2027 he will be 81 years old. Atiku should give room for younger Nigerians, who still have the energy and the brain to develop the country,” he said.

“Atiku should be in a situation where he plays like the big uncle in the room or the elder in the room.

“What would anybody carry me now to do because I’m heading to 80 years old and I want to go and be a minister? To do what?

“Let’s mentor the younger generation, and let’s be consistent with our strong belief in our party norms.”
