The national leader of the All Progressive Congres (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has asked Nigerians to join hands with the federal government to fight the spread of the dreaded (COVID-19).
In a special birthday message, the former Governor of Lagos state appreciated God for all His blessings towards him and his family.
Tinubu also announced that the yearly colloquium which is held in his honour will not hold today due to the coronavirus pandemic,
He said: “I thank God for giving me the life and time on earth he has provided me. He has blessed me beyond the ability of words to describe.
“I am more than cognizant of His great mercies toward me. I have much to be thankful for. However, this is not the moment for exuberant celebration or light talk on my part.
“At this moment, it is better that we confer in prudence and wisdom, one to another so that we can better deal with that which seems eager to severely deal with us.
“We have entered a sobering period. We face a challenge we cannot see but one that can find us all too easily.
“As individuals, this puts every one of us at a startling disadvantage. Each is rendered vulnerable by the reckless act of his neighbour.
“Each is made safer by the enlightened conduct of a stranger. The very nature of this assailant calls us toward greater unity and kindness”.
