Coronavirus: Tinubu cancels 68th birthday colloquium


All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday cancelled the 2020 edition of the annual colloquium to celebrate his 68th birthday.

A statement issued by Mrs. Foluso Idumu on behalf of the organising committee said it was in consideration of fears over the ravaging Coronavirus.

The programme was scheduled for Sunday March 29 in Lagos.

The statement reads: “After careful consultation with all relevant stakeholders regarding the health and safety of all our guests, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 12th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, scheduled for March 29th 2020 in Lagos, till further notice.

“Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation.

“We are however certain that this is the right decision given the prevailing circumstances.”
