Why I Shelved My 70th Birthday Colloquium - Tinubu


The Daily Crucible | Tuesday, March 29, 2022

"Because of the activities of my birthday and early prayers today, I have not been following news. The incident of bomb attack on the train yesterday night was brought to my attention not long ago. I just received a very sad incident this morning about travellers in train that were killed by suspected bandits, I hereby call off the celebration and we shall continue to pray for the repose of those who lost their lives and those at the hospital.

"That this is happening in Nigeria calls for sober reflection for me. Dancing, eating and drinking here when our sisters and brothers have been killed  doesn't befit an elder stateman like me and a senior citizen. As a result of what happened, I have decided to call off this event. The Christian cleric and Muslim are here, they should continue to pray for our dear nation.

"I pray God to comfort those who lost their lives in the tragic incident and I pray to God to set Nigeria on the right path and return peace to our land."

-Asiwaju Bola Tinubu while announcing the cancellation of the 13th Colloquium to celebrate his 70th birthday
