President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday (today), told Nigerians abroad that he was a brilliant student back in the days when he was a student.
Naija News reports that the Nigerian leader is currently in India for the G-20 Summit.
On Thursday evening, however, Tinubu met with several Nigerian students studying in India, and he admonished them that with dedication, honesty, determination, and a change of mindset, they can reach for the top in their respective careers.
“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,” a statement made available to newsmen by the Special Adviser to the President Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, read.
