Physical celebrations for the 69th birthday and 12th colloquium of All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Bola Tinubu, was put off due to inclement weather.

This was confirmed via a tweet by Laolu Akande, the spokesman to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday, March 29.

He tweeted, “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.”
