Political bigwigs, dignitaries and other eminent Nigerians from all walks of life will on March 28 converge on Lagos for the annual Bola Tinubu Colloquium.
The event, the ninth in the series, is to commemorate the birthday of former Lagos State governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) national stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who turns 65 on March 29.
According to a statement by Tinubu Media Office on Thursday and signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman, this year’s colloquium has as its theme- “Use What We Make, Make What We Use”.
It is to hold at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to the organisers, the Colloquium will focus on the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit in Nigeria.
“The goal is to create a space where ideas and people relevant to creating innovative but everyday solutions in Nigeria can share knowledge, experiences and proffer solutions to the challenges facing the sector,’’ they say.
The organisers say the idea of holding a colloquium yearly in honour of the APC leader was first conceived in 1999 by his close friends and associates.
“The friends and associates thought it important that the rich debates and intellectual discussions that often marked cabinet and other meetings with Tinubu be translated to a platform which would expand the conversations and lead to tangible outcomes,’’ the colloquium website says.
