A 102-year-old Nigerian woman, Nonye Josephine Ezeangaeche has shocked many people after she announced her presidential ambition.
According to the old woman, she’s ready to contest the presidential election in 2023.
Madam Nonye announced her intention to run for president during a visit to the management of the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA.
She hails from Aguata, Anambra state and is the founder of the ‘Voice for Senior Citizens of Nigeria’ group.
Caro Nwosu, president of the group, quoted Ezeanyaeche, was quoted by Sahara Reporters as saying
“If Nigerians are shying away from political participation, she says she is ready to contest. She has already prepared a manifesto for herself. She has the vision. If the good ones don’t come out to contest…”
Ezeanyaeche acknowledged Nwosu’s statement as she said in Igbo, “If you have a male or female child, try to train them to surpass your own achievements.”
