Former President of the Performing Musicians Employers’ Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli, has opened up on what he plans to do if the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu becomes president.
Speaking during an interview with Arise TV, the renowned flautist said he would advise and support Tinubu if he eventually becomes Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Recall that HausaToday earlier reported that Tee Mac who is an in-law to the APC flag bearer stated that Tinubu is 86-year-old and not qualified to become Nigeria’s next president.
However, Tee Mac later explained that his comment was taken out of context while also adding that he feels uncomfortable that the statement went viral.
He said, “Well, Oluremi is Itsekiri. Her mother and my mother are cousins. So, we are related. Tinubu is my in-law. Tinubu has been a music fan his whole life. I have seen him at many events. I saw him at an African music award. When you are out in publicity and you need music, you become friends.
“I was taken out of context. I replied on Social media to someone who we used to converse with and it went viral. I have no negative thoughts or negativity over the candidacy of Tinubu.
“I feel uncomfortable that it went viral. I respect Tinubu. I have known him for over twenty years. I was shocked by a statement taken out of context. They went to my Instagram, and all media outlets took it up. I did not feel well that the remarks went viral.”
