The  South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA)-a pro-Tinubu group has describe the comment made by the  the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON) on Tinubu’s Presidential ambition as a double dose of ignorance and arrogance.

The director has urged Tinubu to drop his presidential ambition and back a young Igbo candidate, but when a SWAGA rep spoke to blueprint newspaper, he lambasted the DG calling his comments arrogant and ignoarnt

 SWAGA National Coordinator, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who made the position known Sunday in a telephone interview with blueprint, said age is not a barrier to performance in office and that the constitution does not forbid Tinubu from contesting for office.

He said: “There is no age barrier and it is his constitutional right to contest. Performance is not a function of age. Winston Churchill of Great Britain was 82 and was elected Prime Minister. On the other hand, we know of many younger people that were in public office and they have nothing to show for it.

“During military era, there were many young people in position and they have nothing to show for their time in office.  It is the personality of the person contesting election that counts. It is his determination to turn things around that matter.

“It smacks of arrogance for Okechukwu to ask him (Asiwaju) to withdraw and support younger people.  It is unbecoming of his high office. It is unfortunate. He should withdraw the statement.”
