In Nigeria, a 102-year-old woman declares her intention to run for President.



Nonye Josephine Ezeanyaeche, a 102-year-old Nigerian woman, has announced her ambition to run for President in 2023. 

Ezeanyaeche, better known as "Mama Africa," is the founder of the "Voice for Senior Citizens of Nigeria" group and hails from Aguata, Anambra state. 

She recently paid a courtesy call to the Nigerian Television Authority's management team, where she stated her willingness to run for the top spot if the country's younger generations are not ready.

Ezeanyaeche was quoted by Sahara Reporters as saying by Caro Nwosu, the group's president. 

"If Nigerians are hesitant to participate in politics, she says she is willing to run." She's already written herself a manifesto. She is a visionary. If the good ones don't show up for the competition..." 

"If you have a male or female child, try to train them to surpass your own achievements," the elderly woman remarked in Igbo, acknowledging Nwosu's comments. 




She is believed to have received numerous honors for her humanitarian and nation-building efforts, including the African Peace Award in 2021. 


She joins a lengthy list of those who have expressed interest in running for President in 2023.
