Ahead of his 69th birthday coming up on Monday, former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is expected to chair this year’s Arewa House Lecture, holding on Saturday in Kaduna.
The lecture, the 11th edition of the annual Arewa House Lecture, will take place at the Arewa House Banquet Hall, Kaduna.
The organizers of the event disclosed that the theme of this year lecture is “Reduction of the Cost of Governance for Inclusive Growth and Youth Development in Northern Nigeria in a Post-COVID-19 Era.”
The lecture is expected to be delivered by the chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum, NGF, and the governor of
Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong.
The Arewa House Lecture Series is organised every year in honour of one of the most distinguished founders of modern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the late Sardauna of Sokoto, and provides a forum for prominent elder statesmen and other distinguished Nigerians to address issues of national importance.
In a letter inviting Asiwaju Tinubu, the Director of the Centre, Dr. Shu’aibu Shehu Aliyu, said, “On behalf of the board and management of the Arewa House-Centre for Historical Documentation and Research, Ahmadu Bello University, Kaduna, we have the privilege and honour to invite Your Excellency to serve as Chairman at the Eleventh Arewa House Annual Memorial Lecture Series.”
