“I deserve to be listed in Guinness World Records” — Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu says he deserves to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the reforms he has made since assuming office on May 29, 2023.

Tinubu emphasised his transformative initiatives during his tenure as Lagos State governor from 1999 to 2007, highlighting his role in propelling the state from obscurity to become the fifth largest economy on the African continent.

He underscored that his past accomplishments significantly positioned him for the presidency.

This revelation came to light during his address at the 10th German-Nigerian Business Forum held in Berlin, Germany.

Tinubu remarked, “For those who fear various obstacles, look at me; I come from the private sector, and I’m one of you, trained by Deloitte. I served as the treasurer of Exxon Mobil. I define corporate governance in any way, and I am in it.

“I governed Lagos for eight consecutive years. Today, I can proudly say that Lagos State is on the horizon and has the fifth-largest economy in Africa, rising from zero.

This is the track record that led me to the office of president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Nigeria voted for me for reforms, and from day one of my inauguration, I started the reforms. 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; my inaugural speech disclosed what I would do,” Tinubu added.

Tinubu’s remarks came after two crucial agreements between Nigerian and German companies were signed in Berlin on Tuesday.
