Former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has explained how he made his first millions.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen the 64 year old billionaire politician widely credited for securing the victory of the APC in the 2015 elections said it was during his years as an auditor with renowned accounting firm, Deloitte.

He said, “At Deloitte and Touche, I chose to travel more than 80% 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.

“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”
