Just after we have brought to your notice a Nigerian designer who decorated the White House, another Nigerian, Adewale Adeyemo, has been appointed as the first president of the Obama Foundation.
The 39-year-old man was the former deputy national adviser for international economics. He was very helpful in how America was able to overcome recession many years ago.
In his new role, Adewale Adeyemo would be working with the foundation to manage operations of the organisation.
The Obama Foundation has grown its workforce to almost 200 and has a number of programs to support the next generations of enablers. “Wally is the ideal person to help lead the Foundation team as we continue to grow the impact of our global civic engagement programs and advance the Obama Presidential Center,” said Nesbitt, the head of the board.
Other parts of his responsibilities will be to implement and execute the foundation’s core plans and policies that are targeted at his global vision. Another thing worthy of note is that Adewale holds a BA from the University of California at Berkeley and a J.D. from Yale Law School.
