ElDee ElDee

Nigerian rapper Lanre Dabiri who is popularly known as ElDes has stated that candidates for president should not be permitted to be older than 70.

The veteran rapper during a recent interview with media celebrity JOI opined that such a thing is a sign of failure for a nation.

ElDee added that when older people contest presidential elections, it implies that they didn’t mentor the young ones to take up such positions.

According to ElDew, the youth should also be given a chance to come to governance with fresh and new ideas which will make the country advance.

He said: “There is no reason why people who are in their 70s are trying to be President in Nigeria. To me, it is a failure because it means you haven’t groomed anybody this whole time wey fit come in, come bring in new ideas. You believe say na you go still do am. Na still this you go do everything. My mentality is, let new people in.“
