CAN 74 YEAR OLD JOHN ODIGIE OYEGUN BRING THE EXPECTED CHANGE IN NIGERIA?

Former Executive Governor of Edo State between 1992 and 1993 during the aborted Nigerian Third Republic, John Oyegun has emerged as the first National Chairman of All Progressives Congress(APC). Many party faithfuls believe the choice of this Economist who is a Southerner and a Christian will silent the ruling party and some others who see the APC as an Islamic Organization...

However, the age is my concern...without disputing his wisdom, knowledge and intellectual capacity towards politics..can his body and age stand the drama, stress and uncertainty that comes with the present day politics in Nigeria?

Meanwhile, sources states that John Oyegun is a close ally of Senator Bola Tinubu, who happens to be a top frontier of the party nationwide...his major contender, former Governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva who will clock 50 next month had to step down for him.
