George Weah, Dani Rodrik, Yahya To Speak At 12th Bola Tinubu Colloquium by HonNL: 4:08pm On Mar 26
Liberian President George Weah, a Professor of international political economy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, Dani Rodrik, and Mohamed Yahya of the United Nations Development Programme are some of the confirmed speakers at the 12th Annual Bola Tinubu Colloquium.

A statement on Friday by the organising committee said that the event taking place virtually on Monday, 29 March 2021 was to celebrate the birthday of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was a former Lagos State Governor and a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the statement, this year, the Bola Tinubu Colloquium will focus on peace-building and national cohesion as a tool for growth and prosperity in Nigeria.

“The theme interrogates these issues in the light of contemporary incidents and commentaries in the public space with ethnic and religious dimensions.

“Our objective is to explore the implications of violent conflicts and innovative strategies for sustaining peace in a heterogeneous society with multi-ethnic groups, such as Nigeria,” the organisers said.

Dani Rodrik is the Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is currently President-Elect of the International Economic Association and Co-Director of Economics for Inclusive Prosperity.

The professor will deliver the keynote address titled: “Where Can Growth Go? The Social Conflict Push.”

He will speak along the line of his thoughts as promoted in his work, “Where did all the Growth Go? External Shocks, Social Conflict, and Growth Collapses.”

Also, President George Weah, will also be speaking on the tenuous nature of rebuilding a country after brutal civil wars, emphasising the importance of national reconciliation, trust-building for the forging of national cohesion and unity well as bringing a country back from the brink.

The event kicks off at 12 Noon, and everyone can register at www./BolaTinubuColloquium.

Sometimes you will get lucky and stumble on good fortunes and opportunities that you absolutely do not deserve. Embrace them. Make the most of them. Do not shy away from the challenge.

A lot of people complain about how life is unfair. I have a different perspective here. LIFE IS UNFAIR. Embrace it. I never see people complain about life being unfair to them in a good way.

* Some of us will be born to loving and caring parents (while thousands grow up orphans)

* Some of us will make friends for life (while millions live and die alone)

* Some of us will find the love of our lives (while others get their heart broken)

* Some of us will stuff ourselves with food today (while millions sleep hungry)

* Some of us will get that success we didn’t deserve (while others get left behind)

* Some of us will be happy and content (while most remain sad and pessimistic)

LIFE IS UNFAIR. LIFE IS AWESOME. LIFE IS ALL WE’VE GOT. 
EMBRACE IT!
Thank you all

This man is doing all his best towards 2023 Presidential election, Tinubu getting the presidential ticket will be the worst thing to happen to APC in 2023, He have the fame but people don't really like him.
Nigerians are tired of repeating old men on seat of power.

He's got more chances of winning 2023 than Uzor 'ole' Kalu, Rochas 'statue' Okorocha and Peter Adaobi combined.
