MRS. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission has described the appointment of Nigeria-born Mr. Adeyemo Adewale as President of the Obama Foundation in the US as a well-deserved appointment.

In the letter of congratulations signed by Dabiri-Erewa and addressed to Mr. Adeyemo Adewale, she said it was gratifying that the US-based Nigerian was qualified enough to be the President of the Obama Foundation.

She said that the appointment had confirmed that “we have many wonderful Nigerians portraying the good image of the country in their chosen fields.

Your track record of experience is of high repute, which has demonstrated that millions of Nigerians in the Diaspora are excelling in their various professions and continue to project a good image of the country.”

Adeyemo, an economic expert, was on Tuesday announced as the first president of the Obama Foundation.

He is expected to work closely with the current leadership of the Foundation, including the Board’s Chairman, Martin Nesbitt and the CEO, David Simas.

He will manage the Foundation’s day-to-day operations, helping to implement the organisation’s overall strategic goals and vision.
