He recently had his say via a press statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he cancelled his 13th Birthday Colloquium to honour the victims of the train attack, even if he is grateful to God to be able to survive till his 70th birthday.
Tinubu added that more than 60 people getting killed and bombed on a train between Kaduna and Abuja is a very sad reality for our country.
His words, “Today is supposed to be a very joyful 70th birthday of mine living on earth. I give thanks to God Almighty for being able to survive to this age.”
“I have just been informed of a very sad incident in our country, very sad indeed, that over 60 people and many more were killed and bombed on a train between Kaduna and Abuja just last night. That is a very serious incident about the security of lives in this country and it calls for a very serious sober reflection.”
“For me to be here celebrating, dancing and enjoying myself doesn’t show enough concern of a statesman and a senior citizen of this country.”
“This event should not be holding. I have consulted with the people you see around me here and they’ve agreed with me and being a very highly committed democrat, I have given myself to their suggestion that they agreed that this event be cancelled.”
