Today, leaders and distinguished individuals across Africa are gathering in Nigeria’s capital for the 11th Bola Tinubu Colloquium.
The Tinubu Colloquium is usually held this day annually to mark the birthday of a leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu. The event usually focusses on tackling critical issues affecting the government and people of Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari and other prominent leaders and politicians across the country are expected to attend the event holding at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
This year’s colloquium which marks the 67th birthday of Mr Tinubu will focus on jobs and the economy.
According to organisers, the objective is to outline and showcase the government’s efforts to add millions of jobs over the next four years through policies and investment in agriculture, industrialization, and technology/creative sector.
“This will also highlight the Next Level initiatives to prepare our people for the jobs of the future through education and skills.”
