Eminent Nigerians from all walks of life are expected to converge on Lagos on Tuesday for the ninth Bola Tinubu Colloquium.
The event will be used to mark All Progressives Congress (APC) national stalwart Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s birthday. The former Lagos State governor will turn 65 on Wednesday.
A statement by Mr. Tunde Rahman from the Tinubu Media Office said this year’s colloquium has as its theme: “Use What We Make, Make What We Use”.
It will hold at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island, Lagos.
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,’’ the statement said.
The organisers said the idea was conceived in 1999 by Tinubu’s 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.’’
