The combo of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima meet the twin central nerve of transformational leadership which are: competence and character. Competence because both are experienced private sector technocrats merge with astute public service legacies as sterling Governors and distinguished Senators of Lagos and Borno states respectively.
