President Muhammadu Buhari will be in Lagos today, Thursday, to attend the public presentation of ‘My Participations’, the autobiography of Bisi Akande, who is the former interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress.

A statement by Tunde Rahman, media aide of Bola Tinubu, says President Buhari is the special guest of honour at the event; while Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos is the chief host. The national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, is the guest of honour.

The event will take place at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos state.

Lagosians and commuters in the area are advised to take note.

Meanwhile, in his foreword on the book, Wole Soyinka, Nobel laureate, described the autobiography as “a national gift that could not have been more instructively timed”.

 “There are books whose very handling must be done with heavily insulated gloves since, virtually every page sizzles with contradictions between attestable reality and impudent claims, attempts to cover past crimes and dodge responsibilities,” Soyinka said.
