Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, to some is an icon who has proved his mettle in Political administration first as a senator 1992 – 1993, then a governor of Lagos 1999 till 2007. If track record is anything to go by, Bola Tinubu, whose administration as governor in Lagos contributed more than 30% to Nigeria’s GDP, with a meteoric rise of lagos’ IGR from 600 million to 8 billion per month is expected to do even better as president.
