Nonye Joesphine Ezeanyaeche, a 102-year-old from Anambra state, has declared to run for Nigerian President in 2023.
The woman, Ezeanyaeche, who is also called ‘living legend’ or “Mama Africa’ is the founder of the ‘Voice for Senior Citizens of Nigeria’ group.
During a recent visit to the Management team of the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, Ezeanyaeche said she is ready to contest if younger generations of the country are not ready.
Caro Nwosu, president of the group quoted Ezeanyaeche 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…”
The aged woman acknowledged the 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.”
