The outspoken media figure, Ifedayo Olarinde, also known as Daddy Freeze, has expressed his preference for ‘old corrupt’ politicians to stay in power rather than giving way to young leaders.
According to Freeze, who made this remark in response to the suspension of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, from President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet for alleged fraud.
The OAP told his Instagram followers that Betta Edu’s lack of experience was the reason she was involved in corruption charges after only five months in office.
In his words, older politicians know how to navigate the systems, unlike the youths, who he said would “steal the system senselessly”.
“I don’t want youths to lead Nigeria. I would rather have an old thief that understands the system than a young thief that would just steal the system senselessly,” he said.
“You never do minister work how many months dem Don catch you already.
“At least, other person wey dem dey catch, e dey reach like three years later. Someone who isn’t 40 yet, I’m 10 years older than her [Betta Edu].
“She is a proper youth. Those you saying you don’t want old people, for me, all this old people whether it’s Tinubu, Atiku or Obi, I prefer them to youths. Nigerian youths? Some of them were born deficient of a conscience.”
