The global director of Atiku Diaspora Network, a resident of Oslo, Norway, Mrs. Grace Okagbare, has called on Nigerians resident in the Diaspora to support Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
She made the clarion call at a one-day seminar organised by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Norway Chapter in conjunction with the Atiku Diaspora Network held on Friday 10th November 2018 at Furuset Bibliotek Aktivitetshus, Furuset senter Oslo.
Mrs. Okagbare, an astute politician and older sister to Africa Queen of the tracks, Blessing Okagbare, has been at the forefront of propagating the ideals of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, even before he clinched the People’s Democratic Party presidential ticket.
She advised Nigerians in Diaspora to join forces with their families and friends back home in Nigeria in support of Atiku Abubakar. The priority for everyone home or abroad should be to ‘get Nigeria working again.’
The chairman of the People’s Democratic Party,(PDP), Norway Chapter, Chief Dr. Ahamafula Adom, called on all Nigerians in Scandinavia irrespective of their political side to work together with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to help get Nigeria working again.
He said Atiku has promised to run an all-inclusive government devoid of tribal or religious sentiments if voted into office. He also promised 40 percent of his cabinet would consist of women and youths.
Amongst other prominent and dedicated political influencers, the meeting was attended by the PDP women leader, Norway chapter, Lolo Juliet Okparaebo, Mr. Nnamdi Henry Agwumaro (PRO) and Mrs. Rosemary Sundbakken (Director of Finance Atiku Diaspora Network).
Mrs. Okagbare promised to do all within her capacity to ensure the ambition of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, comes to reality at the end of the 2019 general elections
