National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has cancelled the 13th edition of its annual birthday colloquium to honour the victims of the Kaduna train attack.
Tinubu who clocks 70th today, March 29th made the announcement at Eko Hotels in Lagos, the venue of the 13th Bola Ahmed Tinubu Colloquium on the theme, ‘Pivoting Nigeria into the New Order’.
The former Lagos State Governor said his action became necessary to mourn the victims of the Abuja-Kaduna Train attack, which occurred on Monday night in Kaduna State.
According to him, the attack was a “national tragedy” and over 60 persons lost their lives to the terror.
“This event shouldn’t be holding,” Tinubu told his guests, associates and followers at the Eko Hotels in Lagos, venue of the event.
He, thereafter, called on the two Christian and Islamic clerics, who offered opening prayers earlier, to also offer a special prayer for the repose of the victims of the terrorist attack and for the nation in general before departure of guests.
