Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has averred that, for the reforms he made since assumption of office on May 29, he deserves to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

According to Tinubu, during his time as Governor of Lagos State between 1999 and 2007, he moved the state from zero to becoming the fifth largest economy on the continent, adding that his track record prepared him for the presidency.

Addressing a group of investors at the 10th German-Nigerian Business Forum on Tuesday, in Berlin, Germany, the President said he has dealt with “every hurdle and obstacle” in the way of those willing to invest in Nigeria.

His words: “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. Define corporate governance in any way, and I am in it.

“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. 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.
