President Muhammadu Buhari, was on Thursday, absent at the Colloquium of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The Colloquium holds annually, to mark the birthday of the former Lagos State Governor.
This year’s Colloquium, which has the theme: “Next Level: Work For People”, is holding at the International Conference Centre, ICC, Abuja .
It is not clear why the President is not at the event, but Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, is standing in for Buhari, who is supposed to be the Chairman of the event.
Sources alleged that this year’s Colloquium, which is holding in Abuja, as against Lagos, is part of Tinubu’s strategy for the 2023 Presidency, which he is planning to contest.
Recall, that Buhari attended last year’s Colloquium, and previous ones which was held in Lagos.
This year’s Colloquium, focuses on jobs and the economy. The Organisers said that they are using the programme as an avenue to showcase the government’s efforts to add millions of jobs over the next four years.
