In an interview at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit Musk said:

“It is essential for us to die because most individuals do not alter their minds; they simply die. If you live forever, we may create a terribly ossified society in which fresh ideas are unable to prosper.”

Musk argued, if individuals lived longer or were immortal, it may have a negative impact on society by allowing ideas to stagnate and fester rather than being improved or superseded by subsequent generations of people.

This isn’t the first time Musk has spoken out against the impact of aging populations on everyone else: he recently advocated for age limitations on entering public office, and reaffirmed similar thoughts at a conference.

He added:

“I’m not making fun of aging; rather, I’m saying that if we have individuals in extremely significant positions who must make judgments that are crucial to the country’s security, they must have adequate presence of mind and cognitive capacity to make those decisions correctly. Because the entire country is reliant on them.”

Musk’s net worth recently increased due to an 8.5% gain in Tesla’s shares and a 65.6 percent increase since the beginning of the year.

2023: Fresh crisis looms as APC governors differ over Tinubu’s presidential ambition

Governor Ganduje’s loyalists constitute the other faction of the APC in Kano and controlled the leadership until the Federal High Court in Abuja recently voided the congresses that produced the party leaders.

Kano APC crisis has nothing to do with Ganduje

After meeting with Tinubu, Shekarau said the crisis in the APC in the state has nothing to do with Governor Ganduje but rather the state’s leadership of the party.

He said:

“I told him (Tinubu) that the crisis in Kano APC was not between myself and Ganduje, it is a disagreement of the party leadership in the state; we were sidelined in the affairs of the party in the state.

“Tinubu told me that Governor Ganduje initially briefed him about the crisis, so as a leader, he deemed it necessary to invite me to hear from me and he sent for me and we met on Sunday in Lagos.”

Though there are strong speculations that Tinubu is eyeing the presidency in 2023, Shekarau said the meeting with former Lagos governor was strictly on the Kano party crisis.

He said such a meeting with the party leader was usual as they had always met to discuss issues at stake in the APC.

His words:

“There is nothing like supporting him. As I told you he requested me to see him. So both of us are leaders in the APC, and we have good relation. So with or without this crisis happening in Kano, we can meet and discuss issues of our great party.”

When asked if Tinubu promised to take any action regarding the feud in Kano, Shekarau said it is left for him to decide, Daily Trust also reported.

“He listened to them and he listened to our side, so whatever remains is left for him. If he will offer an advice to them or to the party is all well with us,” he added.
