The Atiku/Obi Team was in New Jersey, USA on the 16th of Jan 2019 at a town hall meeting where they tabled out The Atiku/Peter Obi Plans for Nigerians, especially those in the Diaspora and also took questions from the audience.
A lot of people agree that the catchiest moment of the night was when H.R.H (Rev,Dr) Prince AZK Adekoya, a Nigerian American Legal expert, consultant and a people’s advocate stood up to challenge the Atiku/Obi Team.
The Prince queried Segun Sowunmi at the Townhall meeting, demanded for a commitment and got one. That moment has become known all over as that “that powerful question moment” that got the streets buzzing. He asked if the team would take a message back to Atiku and Obi. He also demanded and got a commitment from the team that the administration would frequently report back to, and interact with the Diaspora residents on a regular basis.
We4WeREPORTS.com reporters enjoyed yet another “Powerful Moment” on the 21st of Jan 2019 (Martin Luther King’s day) when they interrupted his conversation with Val Frakas Mo’Fire Amadi (A publisher at the We4WeREPORTS.com), a fellow F.O.P.O member and spoke to him on the sidelines about his participation in the group, F.O.P.O (Friends of Peter Obi) who hosted the Town hall meeting on behalf of Peter Obi and Atiku. The F.O.P.O as the name suggests is a gathering of a few friends of Peter Obi, the 2019 PDP vice presidential candidate who are committed to helping elect their friend, Peter. The prince said,
“This impromptu town hall meeting, hosted by concerned Nigerians A.K.A Friends of Peter Obi (FOPO) was a way forward for Nigerians in Diaspora to fully participate in the process of moving Nigeria forward with our experience, expertise, exposure, and the co-existence abilities. These are needed in order for any nation to be successful. For this and many other reasons, the Friends of Peter Obi has raised the bar and put our leaders on notice that big brother and sister Diasporans are no longer sitting and watching from afar, but are ready to be part of the collaborative efforts needed, that they are willing and able to help move Nigeria in the right direction. We are sick and tired of putting New wine in an old wine skin or running our economy with analog system in a digital age. Enough means Enough. The success of Nigeria is Paramount to all Diasporans”
