The Nigerian President, Bola Tinubu has stated that he should be in the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR) because of what he has done for the country.
Tinubu stated that he began economic reforms on his very first day in office, and therefore should have his name in the GWR.
The president made the statement this while talking to Nigerians based in Germany yesterday.
Tinubu pointed out that he has a private sector background and Nigerians voted for him because of the reforms and track record he had as former Governor of Lagos state.
