Tinubu also donated ₦100 million to the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to aid the fight against Coronavirus.
The former governor also commended the residents of the state for observing social distancing and other measures advised by the government to help in nipping the virus in the bud.
In a statement he personally signed, Tinubu said his annual colloquium was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic which requires some level of social distancing and avoiding large gatherings.
“We could not do so this year but by God’s grace we will do so again,” he said.
While regretting that the circumstances this year “prevent us from gathering together to celebrate my birthday, he would still mark the occasion with the donation.
He said, “That is why I have chosen today to announce that I will be making a donation of N200 million to fight this deadly virus.
“In pursuant to this pledge, N100 million will be made available to the government of Lagos State and another N100 million to NCDC to support their efforts in fighting the scourge of coronavirus (COVID-19),” he said.
