Tinubu’s birthday: Bad weather stops Osinbajo, Reps’ Speaker, Mustapha, Aregbesola, others from colloquium

Bad weather on Monday forced many dignitaries invited to the 69th birthday and 12th colloquium of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to stay away from the event.

It was gathered that many dignitaries, who were billed to travel to Kano by air, were forced to cancel their flights due to the bad weather condition which prevailed..

Among those affected were Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha; Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; and the Minister of the Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

Special Adviser on Media to the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande, said in a tweet that Osinbajo would, however, monitor the event virtually alongside his boss, President Muhammadu Buhari.

“VP Osinbajo spending the day celebrating Asiwaju on his 69th birthday was on course to Kano this morning until weather conditions aborted travel plans. He’ll alongside Mr. President join the 12th BAT Colloquium virtually from the Presidential Villa. Happy birthday Asiwaju,” he tweeted.

A moderator on the zoom platform informed invited guests that the event scheduled for 12noon had been shifted to 12.30pm due to the absence of several VIPs.

Meanwhile, no fewer than 60 members of the House of Representatives led by Majority Leader, Ado Doguwa, had already arrived in Kano and are expected to storm the venue of the event.
