“There have been boasting that we are not rich to afford the cost of the elections. They know they cannot match our acumen, proactiveness, and network, so they thought they could scare us with the irrelevant claim that they will outspend us. But they are wrong! They forget that you, the people, have the power and the riches. That is why many of you have come on board to co-produce HOA4HOA’23″ Hammed Aroyewun asserted
