While it was true that being a President of Nigeria is a lifetime ambition of the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the people has been worry over his health profile, this gives room for people to doubt his capability.

Nigerians may not want to take another risk of electing a sick personality, who appears unfit medically, as the next President of Nigeria.

The good citizens of Nigeria would want a very physically fit individual, whose capacity, intellectually, structurally, emotionally is not in question.

The Physical stability of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is no doubt questionable, even though he tried to convince Nigerians that his physical health challenge would not affect his performance. It’s not certain if Nigerians are set for that excuse.

Nigerians are wiser and more careful than in the past, they are more concerned about the capacity, capability, proficiency, and physical stability of those who lead the country in the next 8 years.

While I am using this medium to send my birthday greetings to Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom, wishing him good health, my humble and honest suggestion to him is that he should attend to his health, play a fatherly role in the process of electing the next Nigeria president rather than allowed himself to be dragged into any Presidential contest.
