Former governor of Lagos State and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has cancelled a colloquium over a terrorist attack on a Kaduna-bound train on Monday.

The colloquium was slated for Tuesday in Lagos in commemoration of Tinubu’s 70th birthday.

The APC presidential aspirant urged clerics and everyone present to pray to God to help Nigeria overcome the war against terrorism. He said that as a senior citizen, he cannot be celebrating while others are in sorrow.  

In a related development, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) shelved his planned trip to Eko Hotels in Lagos State, the venue of the 13th Bola Ahmed Tinubu Colloquium.
