The former governor of Lagos, Tinubu, has always celebrated his birthday with a colloquium.
Nonetheless, he has decided to concentrate on offering thanks and requesting favors this year.
Special prayers will be held in Lagos and other parts of the nation on March 27, 2023, according to a statement made by Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s media assistant. The special prayers will be held in the main mosques in each of the state’s five divisions.
President Muhammadu Buhari and First Lady Aisha Buhari, Vice-President-elect senator Kashim Shettima and Hajia Nana Shettima, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, other state governors, as well as members of the national and state house of assembly legislatures, are among those who will receive prayers in addition to him and his wife, senator Oluremi Tinubu.
Pulse Takeout: His choice deviates from tradition and emphasizes his preference for a spiritual celebration. Also, it serves as a reminder of the value of appreciation and the place of religion in Nigerian culture.
The statement was made when attendees were already seated at the event at the Eko Hotel and Suites, according to Jubril Gawat, a media assistant to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
On the stage at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Asiwaju announced the postponement of his 70th birthday celebration while guests and well-wishers were already seated for the ceremony. Asiwaju claims that instead of celebrating, it necessitates sober thinking.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu formally declared that the birthday celebration had been postponed and that everyone should return home. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace, Asiwaju prays, Gawat tweeted.
