Total N4, 305, 000

Mass production with discount: 300 packs of Democracy Day @ 30 fabrics @ N4, 000 per 1 were produced and circulated free of charge to Heroes and Heroines of Democracy, donations above explained how few individuals were able to encourage us with their donations while very few, less than 10% of the total Beneficiaries, bought their own clothes.

After successful delivery to our outlets manned by our volunteer members in various States and FCT, we asked them to sell a pack @ N6, 000, keep N1, 000 as their gain and return N5, 000 to the Headquarters.

Total delivery of June 12 or Democracy Day @ 30/May 29 inauguration fabrics

300 pieces × N4, 000 = N1, 200,000 (Batik)

2 Guinea Brocades @ N14,000 = N28,000

2 new Batiks = N8,000

Total = N1, 200, 000 + N28, 000 + N8, 000= N1, 236, 000.

N4, 305, 000 – N1, 236, 000 = N3, 069, 000, is the total amount available to stage the 5 June 12 @ 30 World Press Conferences including glamorous presentation of Grand Commander of African Politics to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, through his NADECO friend, Otunba Jumoke Ogunleye, JMK, on Valentine’s Day in Abuja, plus foundational outing, 2022 Yoruba National Day Celebration, which was held Friday, 23 September, 2023, in Ibadan, it witnessed the mega endorsement of the 3 APC Gubernatorial Candidates of Lagos, Ogun and Oyo States and presentation of African Man of the Century Odu’a Award, to Mr President, ably represented by Ambassador Sola Iji. Chairman of occasion was Chief Iyiola Oladokun, former Deputy Governor of Oyo State. This success of this event made the Nigerian Youths’ Organisations and various Civil Societies’ Groups from various Regions to be collectively pushing for our National gathering in Abuja, that would involve all the Regions including FCT under Coalition of Pro – Democracy Groups for A Better Nigeria

The donations confirmed almost zero neutrality of Mr President against the background that many believe he is very rich and had spent so much Billions to make himself very popular ahead of Election. The truth is that he has made so many People across the Globe and respect is reciprocal

We sourced for these donations from our rich members, sympathetic political Leaders, Leaders of Thought and we backed it up with various contributions from several affiliate Organisations to make it a huge success. You are now free to guess how much in reality should have gone into such a huge Celebration of Democracy day @ 30, including staging Monday, May 27, 2023 intimidating Pro – Tinubu Rally, inside Unity Fountain Square, Abuja, condemning Opposition call for cancellation of Election, interim National Conference. We rounded up our activities there Monday, 29 May, 2023. This is a complete 2 months’ project.

Our various venues, Banquet Hall of APC Secretariat, Oyo State; Conference Hall of Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Abuja; Unity Fountain Square, Abuja, and Afri Hotel, Opposite Defence College, Central Area, FCT, Abuja, were made available by Hon Isaac Omodewu, APC Chairman, Oyo State, former Governor Simeon Lalong of Plateau State and DG, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) (for venues 2 and 3) and Coalition for A Better Nigeria/Afri Hotels Suites and Restaurants Limited in the same order.

At this junction, we must appreciate our highly productive partnership with Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, since December 2004, when Bola Ige Centre for Justice was inaugurated inside their Oranmiyan Hall. Next year will complete 2 decades of our Union. Time flies!

Few Aides of our Political Leaders, most especially those that have so far donated, being honoured, while Mr Vice President, our past and present Governors, Deputy Governors, Speakers are our key political Leaders expected to show geniune appreciation as part of the core Beneficiaries of Democracy Day @ 30

We do hope that this World Press Conference, 5th in the series, will serve as a Reminder to them all because their inaction is delaying free flow of political envagelism at their individual ends.

We so much understand the bureaucracy in place and we expected them to have worked around it in reaching out to us even before Saturday, 27 May, 2023 Tinubu Mandate Actualisation World Press Conference was held, but “man proposes, God disposes” as He gloriously sent few other Donors to complete the race of June 12 World Press Conference, 4th in the series, with us.

If Mr President could deem it fit to encourage us through his donation at the earliest stage of this noble idea, how much less our individual notable support Groups and key Personalities that are expected to play leading roles in celebrating 30 years of Democracy in Nigeria, after benefitting from free circulation of June 12 @ 30 fabrics. It’s still free fabric, because we didn’t deduct its Bill from any donation mentioned above. We thank our cheerful Givers, ever resilient members, supporters and followers across the Globe, all of whom have now made us proud Today.
