President Tinubu while addressing groups of investors at the 10th German-Nigerian Business Forum on Tuesday stated that he has addressed “every hurdle and obstacle” hindering those willing to invest in Nigeria.
The President recalled his time as a corporate player, adding that his experience from the private sector has equipped him with the tools to tackle the economic challenges assailing Nigeria.
“If you have fears of various hurdles; just look at me. I come from the private sector, trained by Deloitte. Worked for Exxon Mobil until I became the treasurer of the corporation,” he said.
“So, define corporate governance, whichever way, and I am in it. I’m from there. I governed Lagos for eight consecutive years.
“Today, I can proudly beat my chest that Lagos state is on the horizon and the fifth-largest economy in Africa, rising from zero. That is the track record that got me into this office as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Nigeria voted for me for reforms and from day one of my inauguration, I started the reform.
“To me, if you didn’t mention me in the Guinness Book of Records, I’d thrive to find a way to insert myself because I did it without expectation.”
