Tinubu @ 72: Don't celebrate my birthday with funfair, President tell friends and associates.

 Tinubu @ 72: Don't celebrate my birthday with funfair, President tell friends and associates.

By Our Reporter.

Ahead of his 72nd birthday coming up on March 29, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has warned his family members, friends and associates not to spend money in organizing birthday funfair or placing goodwill advertorial messages on newspapers, radio or television to celebrate him.

Instead of wasting such money on birthday jamborees, it should be given to charity organizations of their choice on his behalf, to alleviate the suffering of the vulnerable and underprivileged people in the country.

This is contained in the press statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Information & Strategy, Mr Bayo Onanuga, on Sunday March 24, on behalf of President Tinubu.

Below is the full text of the press statement:



President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will turn 72 on Friday March 29, 2024. The day will be another important milestone in his life as a leader and a statesman. 

During an auspicious occasion as this, it is customary for family members, friends and associates to celebrate him in different ways. 

As the leader of our country, President Tinubu in deference to this challenging times will not host any birthday event and does not want any of his associates and numerous well-wishers across the country to organise any celebratory event on his behalf or in his name. 

President Tinubu appreciates the honour of being the leader of Africa’s leading nation at this time and he is working very hard to make life better for the generality of our people. 

According to him, because of the present mood of the nation and recent killing of the officers and men of our Army and Police in Delta State and recent spate of security breaches by criminal elements in different parts of Nigeria, there should be no form of birthday event and placing of birthday goodwill advertorial messages in newspapers. Goodwill messages should not be placed on radio and television stations too.

President Tinubu enjoins friends and associates who may wish to place goodwill advertorials to kindly donate the money to charity organisations of their choice in his name. 

Although the President appreciates the gallantry of our armed forces in freeing our children kidnapped in Kuriga, Kaduna State and in Sokoto State, he will use the opportunity of his birthday to reflect and re-dedicate himself to the task of building a more stable, more secure, virile, prosperous and united Nigeria.
