Tinubu age commotion as Wikipedia details keep changing


Bola Tinubu’s age has been a cause of argument today, as his Wikipedia page keeps changing to reflect conflicting age of the APC national leader.

Today is his birthday and many dignitaries have taken to social media to celebrate him.

Among the numerous congratulatory messages, Lagos state Governor Sanwo-Olu wrote;

Hearty congratulations to our great leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the joyous occasion of his 69th birthday.

Asiwaju is a statesman and builder whose contribution to a progressive and democratic Nigeria can not be quantified.

Nigerian president Buhari, also wished the APC leader a happy birthday writing;

Happy 69th Birthday to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I pray for the best of health, happiness, strength and wisdom for one of the great pillars of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC); and a sincere and passionate advocate for unity and cohesion in Nigeria.

It is a mark of true statesmanship that his birthday should be hosted in Kano and celebrated in this way, with a Colloquium that is a fitting reflection of the service that Asiwaju has given, to Lagos, Nigeria and Africa—and with friends & associates joining in from far and wide.

Happy 69th Birthday to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I pray for the best of health, happiness, strength and wisdom for one of the great pillars of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC); and a sincere and passionate advocate for unity and cohesion in Nigeria.

Confused social media users though were quick to point out that his age was reflecting, 79 on his Wikipedia page.

Surprisingly as others went to verify, his age was back to 69. The back and fort kept on happening for some time.

That is how we wasted so much time and energy making fun of Buhari’s age and his lack of certificate. We all know how that ended. Here we are toeing the same path with Tinubu. Tsk tsk
