FCT, Abuja – President Bola Tinubu has cancelled his 72nd birthday colloquium and instead fixed prayers for the country.

A statement issued on Sunday afternoon, March 24, by Bayo Onanuga, Tinubu’s special adviser on information and strategy, hinged the decision on the “challenging times” Nigeria is confronted with.

The statement from the presidency partly reads:

“Because of the present mood of the nation and recent killing of the officers and men of our Army and Police in Delta State and recent spate of security breaches by criminal elements in different parts of Nigeria, there should be no form of birthday event and placing of birthday goodwill advertorial messages in newspapers. Goodwill messages should not be placed on radio and television stations, too.

“President Tinubu enjoins friends and associates who may wish to place goodwill advertorials to kindly donate the money to charity organisations of their choice in his name.

“Although the President appreciates the gallantry of our armed forces in freeing our children kidnapped in Kuriga, Kaduna State and in Sokoto State, he will use the opportunity of his birthday to reflect and re-dedicate himself to the task of building a more stable, more secure, virile, prosperous and united Nigeria.”
