Mukadam Asiwaju Asiru Idris, A Leader With Many Positive Tracks Record’s.
_By: Comr. Omosona T. Olakunle_
_The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action, an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign even as the rest of the world wonders why he is not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special.”_
*Asiwaju Asiru Idris* has demonstrated the above quality of a good leader, he is not just a leader but a reliable personality and a ladder to success for many successful youths and the ages.
I am not writing this article to gain favour nor trying to praise sing him but it is the reality that needed to be told to those who are still doubting who Asiwaju Asiru Idris is.
*Alhaji Asiru Idris* leadership style instill in people’s a hope for success by making them to belief in themselves.
I have dedicated the months and years to followed his post on social media, I must confess I enjoyed every single post from him, mostly his post always circle on how the people can be blessed positively and be impactful to the society, he is not just a social media dwellers just like other leaders but a true democrat whose love for the masses is second to none.
_Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals._
*Mukadam* has empowered the masses positively, he is a man who dwells in positivity, his desires for others to grow is what I loved about him.
He is more concerned about the success of others, leader like him are scarce commodities.
To be successful, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals.
*Hon. Asiru* has maximized every opportunities in elevating many out of poverty, some were grateful while others choose another paths to shows their ingratitude characters which I know it will take them nowhere, some even went as far to back-stab him nor criticized him by trying to tarnish his image but they failed woefully because a man blessed by the Almighty God can not be curse by any human.
The more he accomplished, the more they get angry and jealous his sagacity intellect all because he is making positive impact across all board in Kogi west and Kogi State by extension.
Let them keep criticizing the man blessed by God, all I know is that the enemies will always failed in their biding to pull him down.
God bless the man of the people *Mukadam Asiwaju Asiru Idris*, may he continue to succeed in all that he wishes in life.
