Tinubu, a prominent APC member who is also perceived to be well positioned to emerge as the APC presidential candidate in the next presidential election, marked his official 68th birthday in March, would have turned 70 years by 2023.
However, to the surprise of many Nigerians, a check on the internet (Wikipedia) showed that Tinubu‘s account has been tampered with as his age has been edited to 43 years.
The information on the Wikipedia page as at the time of this report, showed/claimed that Tinubu was born on 29th of March, 1978.
Similarly, recall that in March, Wikipedia editors locked the profile page showing details about the life of Tinubu, for “persistent vandalism”, after his age was edited multiple times.
Meanwhile, as many Nigerians wondered why such event is taking place on Tinubu’s profile, no doubts, the issue of acceptability of presidential aspirant of Tinubu’s age, has continued to attract diverse reactions from many Nigerians and political stakeholders, who argued that younger politicians should be allowed to paddle the canoe of the country.
