The historical role played by APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at ending the sixteen years rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at 2015 general elections seems unabated.

Sen. Bruce went ahead by challenging government to establish institutions where the likes of Asiwaju could be studied as a course. “Nigeria lacks a sense of history” he bemoaned
Tinubu in his reaction, thanked the organisers of the event and also took time to respond to Sen. Ben’s submissions by asking him to use his office as senator to sponsor a bill that will bring back the study of History as a subject in Primary and secondary schools, he also ask Sen.

Also honoured on the night were Captains of industries, entrepreneurs, musician…
