A symposium organised for both Christians and Muslims to work together for the common good of the nation, Asiwaju Distinguished Ambassadors Movement (ADAM) brandishes her much anticipated Emilokan Political Ideology summit on the 14th of December 2022.
Omitting emotions that tend to divide Nigerians amidst the political trajectories building up to the 2023 general elections, the movement’s interdenominational prayer and praise sessions took place at the Ten Degrees Event Center, Billing ways in Oregun Ikeja of Lagos state.
Packed with mostly women from across the Lagos metropolis, the program, aimed at inspiring greatness, hosted significant characters who presented back-to-back songs of praise and discourse sessions mainly hurling the leadership integrity of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Simultaneously briefing guests in attendance and members of the press, Aarebirin, Hon. Dr. Princess Folashade Olabanji-Oba, Convener and global director general of ADAM, declared that Emilokanology is the depiction of the best MAN for Nigeria in this critical political season.
Folashade, who also doubles as the National Chairman, of the Association of Local Government Vice-Chairman of Nigeria, in her remarks, described herself as a child under the authority of the most high God, and also a student under the tutelage of leaders, fathers and mentors at the country’s helm of affairs.
Explaining that to whom much is given, much anticipated, the women leader acknowledged that the gathering is not by accident, but a medium to come together for a time that bestows value on the political story of Nigeria.
Touching down on the essence of the forum, Aarebirin Hon. Princess Folashade conveyed, “the term Emilokanology was bred out of a statement made by our All Progressive Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.
Elucidating that ‘Emilokan’ as a message from the National Leader, carries the commitment of aiding people, organisations, States and the nation in understanding its obligations, goals and provoking the right play at the right time.
She continued, “Emilokanology for us is resounding the notion that those who must gain a victory combats must comprehend duration, the moment to revolt and not”.
Further explaining that the statement by the APC presidential flag bearer came from a convinced and pure-hearted stance, she asserted that the proclamation demonstrates that Bola Tinubu already occupies what he’s asking for even before bringing about his appetite to preside over the state of the Nation.
“It is also such an ‘Emilokan’ mentality that clarifies that our prayers and praises can only resonate peace across all corners of the giant of Africa”.
“Such an ideology reflects on our collective responsibility to combat security crisis as a nation because the tranquillity of the country is not a one-sided issue”.
She asserted, “Where you feel your heart is, you live for it and as Asiwaju distinguished ambassadors movement, we’re shaped to carry each other up without any form of eye service”.
Affirming its support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential bid, the vice-chairman of Ikorodu local government capped her speech by indicating that the task for the former Lagos state governor to emerge, president of Nigeria, is an assignment for all to work together and make a reality.
“Furthermore, (Bola Tinubu) is about a mindset of selfless love for the people and community, recognising the significance of the masses in making a great nation” she inferred.
A Series of prayers and praise sessions were subsequently held after a political panel round during the program to project the movement’s agendas.
On the panel (session), which did more justice to the theme of the forum, the stage received erudite speakers; celebrity/political personality, Kenny St. Brown, Kenny Saint Brown, LAHA member, Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, Comr. Nelson Ekunjimi, Hon Kehinde Bangbetan, Hon Adewale Adigun and Aarebirin Hon Dr Princess Folashade-Oba.
Setting the discourse in motion, Kenny St. Brown explained that every Nigerian does not need to be on social media to become an influencer, she broadens that each voice at the grassroots should be swayed to give strength to the right candidate.
The Musical icon also gave credit to Princess Folashade-Oba for establishing the Asiwaju Distinguished Ambassador movement (ADAM), citing her relationship with the woman leader which stems from the Southwest Agenda For Asiwaju group popularly known as SWAGA.
Hon Mojisola Alli-Macauley, member of the Lagos state house of assembly, in her contributions, made it known that for everyone there is a time and season to shine, stating that obviously, the current trajectory is tilting towards Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Crediting Tinubu as a pure Democrat, Mojisola urged Nigerians to galvanise their support around him for a victory outcome come to the 2023 general elections.
“He makes promises and keeps them, which makes him reliable and competent to deliver. I call him Mr Universe in the world of politics because he’s presently considered best out of the rest” Mojisola asserted
Throwing more at the panel session, Princess Folashade-Oba declared that Nigeria needs no other leader in 2023 than Bola Tinubu.
Explaining further, she explained that Emilokanology is coined for Nigerians to know it’s her turn to shine and stop condemning their own.
“Countries that we think are better than ours are developed and grown by people like you and me, we need to begin to fuel ours and be positive about it because it’s our turn” she added.
She concluded by urging Nigerians to go into the elections with a peaceful and just heart to give the nation its ideal leadership transformation.
