”For those who fear various obstacles; look at me—I come from the private sector, trained by Deloitte. I served as the treasurer in Exxon Mobil. Define corporate governance in any way, and I am in it,” he said.



Tinubu’s comments came as two important agreements were signed between Nigerian and German companies.


The first agreement, between Riverside LNG of Nigeria and Johannes Schuetze Energy Import AG of Germany, will see the supply of gas from Nigeria to Germany.

The second agreement, between Union Bank of Nigeria and DWS Group, will see $500 million worth of renewable energy projects invested in Nigeria.
