The Chairman of Heirs Holdings, Anthony Onyemaechi Elumelu, has told Nigeria’s President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that his cabinet needs strong youth representation.
The Chairman of Transcorp said this when the former Lagos State Governor visited him in his home in Lagos.
Elumelu, who is the Founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, then jokingly spoke about offering Tinubu the services of the Chief Executive Officer of the TEF, Ifeyinwa Ugochukwu.
The Founder of United Bank for Africa, who was at the door to welcome Tinubu to his home, took time out to introduce no fewer than three females to the President-Elect, including Ugochukwu.
Elumelu, who referred to Tinubu as: “The last man standing,” as he bid him welcome, told the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress as he introduced Ugochukwu: “This is the CEO of Tony Elumelu Foundation.
“She is in charge of the Foundation.
“So if you need a young female Minister to come and change the women focus….”
While welcoming Tinubu at the entrance to the house as he alighted from the car, Elumelu said: “Last man standing.”
To which Tinubu replied: “Still standing.”
Elumelu then turned to his left where Seyi, Tinubu’s son was, joking that they wore the same kind of dress.
He said: “Seyi, how come two of you are wearing the same thing?
“Is that a uniform?
“Last man standing.
“You are a strong man.”
To which Tinubu chipped in: “Still standing.”
Elumelu then stepped down and hugged Tinubu, saying: “This man ehn, 10 lives.
“Seyi you must be very proud of your father as he is proud of you.
“You are a good man, Seyi.”
He then turned to Tinubu again: “Last man standing.”
At this point, they entered into the house where the ladies were introduced, beginning with Ajibola Ayantuga.”
