Tinubu tells Nigerians in India he was once a security guard



…good education made me president 

On Thursday, President Bola Tinubu revealed that he was once a security guard but he became Nigeria’s President due to his education and can-do attitude. 

President Tinubu made this known while urging Nigerians living in India not to be discouraged as Nigeria is ready to accommodate all.

Tinubu said this in an interaction with Nigerians on Thursday evening in India which was contained in a statement released by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity.

Tinubu, who is currently in India for the G-20 Summit advised Nigerian students in the Asian country to consider their education as a priority.

He said, “Good education brought me here and I am happy to stand before you here as the President of Nigeria. I started small. I was a security guard. I was a tutor in school. I was a brilliant student. I joined Deloitte and was trained by one of the biggest accounting firms in the world, because of my education.

“When I joined them, I asked them, Do you have branches in Nigeria and they said, ‘We have a lot of clients that will take you if you want to go home.’ That’s how I got to Exxon Mobil and was a very successful accountant, auditor-general, and treasurer until I joined politics with a can-do attitude.

“You can also do it; do not be despondent in any way. Nigeria is ready to accommodate all. It does not matter which part of Nigeria you are from.”

Tinubu urged Nigerians to use Nigeria’s diversity and unique culture to advance prosperity for the benefit of all the citizens.

“We are here to present a new future to you. A future of a country that is so rich, endowed, and highly populated. Very dynamic, and unique in its culture, tradition, and ethnicity. That is what will make our prosperity possible if only we can make use of our diversity for prosperity,” he said.
