Good day distinguished compatriots and compliments of the seasons.
I pray you are doing well and keeping safe. Please kindly permit me once more irrespective of your political affiliation to address you through this medium. ADC Diaspora Network (ADC-DN) is the Diaspora affiliate of the African Democratic Congress of Nigeria. ADC is currently the 3rd largest political party in Nigeria in terms of national spread, and the 4th in elected persons.
The ADC-Diaspora Network, wich is now inaugurated, is well integrated into the ADC structures as the 7th (Geopolitical) zone of the party with all the constitutional powers that are applicable to the 6 zones within the country. ADC-DN is created out of the desire of the visionary Leadership of ADC to interface properly with Nigerians in Diaspora across the 5 continents of the Globe and to enable ADC benefit from the best international practise of the Diaspora which is now needed as an indispensable catalyst in the transformation of our dear country Nigeria.
Our vision including but not limited to Youths empowerment, Knowledge transfer, Diaspora Voting 2023, true federalism, good governance, security of all Nigerians home and Abroad. There are over 12,000 elective positions to be filled come 2023 (President & VP, 36 state governors & deputies), 109 senators, 360 house of reps members, over 800 state legislators, nearly 800 local council chairpersons, and nearly 10,000 ward Councillors).
The opportunities for Diaspora to vie for elective positions and be the change we want are vast and possible. You do not have to immediately relocate to Nigeria to start your patriotic political journey. The year of the „Great Diaspora Returns“ starts today. The obvious takeaway from the just conclude 1st Global Roundtable (FGR) on the 12/12/2020 was the unmistakable desire and fire for something different that burned from voices and visions of all stakeholders and speakers.
The representatives of coalition of Nigerian Diaspora from the 5 continents of the World that participated at the Global event are United in saying that „Enough is Enough“!
If you share same Fire and Passion considering the current happenings in our dear country today, kindly get in contact (inbox me)
