Tinubu is my in-law, he is 86-year-old – Tee Mac

Veteran flutist Tee Mac has made claims that All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu is his 86-year-old in-law.

Tee Mac who said this in a recent Facebook post, also explained that it was imperative for Nigerians to decide and question the fitness of the presidential candidate.

Reacting in a comment section of the post by Yemi Olakitan, a writer who had declared his support for the former Lagos State governor, the flutist said it was important for an “intelligent person” to interrogate Tinubu’s candidacy.

He said, “Dear Yemi. 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? Does 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?”

Tee Mac also revealed that he and Tinubu were related by marriage but he distanced himself from the latter due to his role in the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Tee Mac born Omatshola Iseli said, “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-80s personally and even arranged for him to stay in my stepfather’s house (Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony) in London when he went into 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. Respectfully Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli.”
