Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, is seeking the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Given the rather fragile state of the nation, there have been mixed feelings among the youth about re-electing as president politicians who have served in public office in the past.

Earlier, Eniola Badmus, the Nollywood actress, had come under heated criticism for endorsing Tinubu who is aged 70.

On Tuesday, a Twitter user condemned the backlash, saying: “This Jagaban (Tinubu) candidacy has truly helped me see that so many Nigerians actually don’t care about purposeful or diligent leadership.”

Supporting the Twitter user’s statement, Brymo expressed concern that many people are being dismissive of Tinubu over no more than the age factor.

He stated that only Tinubu had the plan it takes to better the lots of Nigerians.

“Yet, he’s the one with a plan. We all know that. Let a city boy be president for once!” Brymo wrote.

“Never met the man or anyone who represents or is acquainted with him. Or even his relations and political affiliates.

“And if we stopped trying to kill them off for being old.”

Nigeria’s epileptic power supply has consistently generated concerns, with at least 200 grid collapse incidents recorded over the past 10 years.

Among his campaign promises, Tinubu had earlier vowed he would work towards ensuring an uninterrupted power supply within four years if he’s elected president.

“My administration’s critical goal is to have 15,000 megawatts distributable to all categories of consumers nationwide to ensure 24/7 sustainable supply within the next four years,” he had said.

“I will focus on stimulating jobs, which will be my top priority as president.

“I will get Nigeria to work by launching a major public works programme, a significant and heavy investment in infrastructure, and value-adding manufacturing and agriculture.

“My administration will build an efficient, fast-growing, and well-diversified emerging economy with a real GDP growth averaging 12% annually for the next four years, translating into millions of new jobs during this period.”
