I Was A Night Guard, Security Man, A Door Man In America – Tinubu Opens Up On His Sojourn Abroad



President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has finally broken his silence on his sojourn abroad at this early age, saying that he had experienced what many Nigerians are facing while pursuing greener pastures in foreign land.

Speaking during an interactive session on Friday with Nigerians resident in France and neighbouring European countries, President Tinubu also make reference to why he suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele.

He said the nation’s financial system was rotten under the suspended CBN Governor.

He said many Nigerians abroad were unable to send money to their relatives because of the multiple exchange rates, saying all that has become a thing of the past.

“Then the financial system was rotten. Few people making bags of our money and then you yourself, you stopped sending money home to our poor parents. Several windows… but that is gone now, is gone.


“The man is in the hands of authorities, something is being done about that, they will sort themselves out.”

Speaking further, President Tinubu said his administration would implement further financial reforms in the coming weeks.

“We have security challenges in the country. Maybe that is how they are fuelling insecurity; we have to look at everything. We will change the financial system; it will work for you.”

“Whether you voted for me or you didn’t vote for me, I am your president. By the grace of God, I have to work on your behalf.

“The challenges are enormous. But do we have hope? Yes. With perseverance, determination and persistence, we can achieve whatever we desire.


“I know the road and I’ve been through what many of you have been through outside the country. I’ve been in America and in the UK; I had been a night guard, security man and a door man in America. But I have achieved my aim,” Tinubu said
