Femi Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is almost 100 years old.
Tinubu recently celebrated his 69th birthday with a Colloquium, 12th in the series, in Kano State two months ago.
There have been insinuations that the former Lagos governor is older than he is claiming to be.
TheCable reported after Tinubu’s 69th birthday, that Wikipedia editors locked his profile page for “persistent vandalism.”
His age was said to have been edited and changed from 69 to 79.
Commenting on a picture of the politician on social media on Friday, Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, said whoever claims that Tinubu is not older than his age “is a liar”.
He wrote: “If anyone tells you that the man in the picture below is 69 tell him that FFK said he is a liar. BAT is closer to 100 than he is to 69!”
