    Former Lagos State Governor and a leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has narrated how a working trip he made while serving as an auditor for auditing giant, Deloitte and Touche, made him an “instant millionaire”.

    Mr. Tinubu first served as a senator in the short-lived third republic and later as governor of Lagos State between 1999 and 2007. He has been accused of making a fortune from politics.

    “At Deloitte and Touche, I chose to travel more than 80 per cent of my working years there. And that is because if a staff chose to travel, he would make more money because he would get travel allowances,” Mr. Tinubu said in a lengthy interview he granted TheNews Magazine on March 29 about his journey through life as he celebrated his 64th birthday.

    Mr. Tinubu said he was sent on an assignment to help set up a an accounting and auditing system for a joint-venture between National Oil and Aramco in Saudi Arabia but by the time he returned to the United States, he discovered that his account had been credited in millions.

    “We had gone there to set up their accounting and auditing system. It was while on that service that I got my financial break. When I returned to the United States, my employers gave me a huge bonus, which instantly turned me into a millionaire.

    “The bonus was $850,000, before taxes. My salaries were also being paid into the bank and I was not touching them. At the time, my salary deposits in the bank had risen to about $1.8 million.”

    Asked if he was not frightened by the development, Mr. Tinubu said, “No. This is because I had a strong grasp of financial matters. I was happy. I bought a house from the money and invested the rest in the U.S. I was living well. I was living in one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the south of Chicago.”

    Mr. Tinubu said he stayed back working for several years in the United States after completing his degree in Chicago. He worked in Deloitte and Touch before returning to Nigeria to serve as an accounting executive for Mobil.

    Bola Tinubu spoke about how he made his first million dollars because people are questioning how he made his money. He will be running for the 2023 presidential election so he has to declare his source of wealth.

    If you believe this stupid story, you need to have your head examined.

    A Yahoo boy can tell better story,every criminal can make up anystory.

    Let's see your bank statement as at that time.

    His story sounds like he went to public toilet and found a bag of cash or that he won a lottery, rooster and bull story

    Is he the only auditor that has audited a major company account, how many accountants are swimming in millions.

    What was the naira to Dollar exchange rate as at then?

    Extraordinary claim require extraordinary evidence. Convince us with documénts and facts and an independent verification,

    Do thiß people think we are fools or what.



    If you think this would give you a soft landing you are mkstaken
