President Bola Tinubu has disclosed that he worked odd jobs, including as a security guard, a door man, among others while he was in the United States.
Tinubu who spoke at a recent engagement with members of the Nigerian community in France, was encouraging the Nigerians in diaspora on the sidelines of the recently concluded economic summit in Paris.
He said, “It is clear to me, I know the road and I’ve been through what many of you have been through outside the country. I’ve been in America, in the UK, I have been a night guard, security, a door man in America. But I have achieved my aim.”
The Nigerian leader sojourned in the U.S. in the ’70s through ’80s, studying and later earning a job with multinational oil company Mobil as an accountant.
