Popular Nigerian singer, Olubankole Wellington, better known as Banky W has urged Nigerians to shun voting any politician older than 65 into power during the 2023 general elections since the retirement age in Nigeria is 65.
Banky W made the call while reacting to the suspension of Twitter operation in Nigeria by the Federal Government, which he describes as “clueless”
The 40-year-old singer cum politician in a series of tweets via his Twitter account said the government cannot stop kidnapping and other vices plaguing the country but can come out to ban Twitter.
He tweet, “Nigerian Government banned Twitter, and announced the ban ON Twitter. You can’t make this up. Clueless.
“They can’t stop kidnapping, armed robbery and terrorism, the country is as unsafe as ever and yet they can seize passports and block bank accounts of peaceful protesters.
“They ban cryptocurrency. They ban Twitter. Completely out of touch with the plight of young people.
“The retirement age in Nigeria is 65. Regardless of the party if you’ll be over 65 at the time of elections, we won’t vote for you. It’ll at least eliminate an entire group that has had enough opportunities to fix this mess.
“Can we consider doing #NowToOldToRule? If you’re over 65, you’ve had your chance to help fix this mess. Isn’t it time for that entire generation to rest? The Nigerian Government should not be a retirement home. It’s worth a thought. It’s worth a shot.”
