Every human being has the potential to show his or her own salient attributes and leadership qualities and these vary from individual to individual especially when they occupy top managerial positions in their respective organizations.
This defines the substantial and impressive leadership qualities which epochal Tokunbo Abiru has brought to bear since he assumed office as the MD/CEO of an almost dwindling defunct Skye Bank now Polaris Bank. As the helmsman of new generation bank, Skye Bank, he is daily proving pundits wrong that age is not a big factor when it comes to efficient service delivery and well-focused administration, even in the face of persistent oppositions from both within his bank and other financial services providers. Many may not agree with the phenomenal status of very unassuming financial guru, Tokunbo Abiru, and this is because the man doesn’t brook sycophancy and undue publicity, going about his job quietly and diligently. Like it is often said, history is normally written by champions, and sometimes they rewrite it. But very few champs excite the splendid tribute of a big player in the wake of their most glorious feats. Toks, as the Managing Director of Skye Bank Plc, however, presents a remarkable difference and distinction. While Tokunbo Abiru might not be a failure, he and his team apparently failed in the mission to save Skye Bank Plc from the same trouble that cost his predecessor, Mr. Timothy Oguntayo, his job. This is a glaring fact, despite CBN’s statement saying otherwise. Yet, the apex bank has decided to retain him (alongside other members of the board), to continue the leadership of Polaris Bank. Tokunbo Abiru is a business executive and former politician who was born 55 years ago, and is closing all the gaps that could affect his position as the leader, and there are indications that everything is working perfectly well for him.
