You allow old men become President, are you crazy? – Mo Ibrahim carpets African youths [VIDEO]


Renowned philanthropist, ​Mohammed “Mo” Ibrahim ​has lambasted African youths for supporting “old men” to become presidents.

At a recent event, which had former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, in attendance, the billionaire ​businessman said even countries doing way better than African nations back younger candidates for the presidency.

He said: “Please allow me to be frank, don’t take offence. I wish to start from wherePresident Obasanjo stopped about age. You have been president for so long that’s why you are careful with words.

“You see people at 90 years and about to start new terms, you guys are crazy or what (he said referring to youths in attendance).

“We see people in wheelchairs unable to raise hands standing for election. This is a joke; you are free to laugh…the whole world already laughing at us.

“The US, the most important country in the world, like it or not…Obama who is half African anyway was 46, 47 years.

“If ​Obama was in Kenya, ​what would he be doing, ​he would ​be driving bus​ maybe.​

“And he was not youngest president. (Bill) Clinton and (JF) Kennedy were even younger.

​”​Why these big countries lead… men in their 40s entrust their nuclear weapon, economies, all resources

“And we only pick up men at 90s to lead us; to lead us where? To the grave?

​Ibrahim, a Sudanese-British worked for several telecommunications companies, before founding Celtel.

After selling Celtel in 2005 for $3.4 billion, he set up the Mo Ibrahim Foundation to encourage better governance in Africa, as well as creating the Mo Ibrahim Index, to evaluate nations’ performance.

This is coming at a time the PDP has declared that its platform was open to all Nigerians to actualise their dreams of contesting elections.

But reacting, National Publicity of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, told Daily Sun that the party won’t want to react to such information when no name of any governor or chieftain was mentioned.

However, competent sources among those who attended the PDP’s recent National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Asaba, Delta State capital, revealed that top APC members, who will defect may join the PDP latest by May.
