Chairman/CEO of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has described the appointment of Nigeria-born Adeyemo Adewale as President of the Obama Foundation in the US as a well-deserved appointment.

Adewale’s appointment was announced on Tuesday in a statement by the chairman of the foundation’s board, Martin Nesbitt.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa, in a congratulatory letter on Wednesday, said the appointment was confirmation that “we have many wonderful Nigerians portraying the good image of the country in their chosen fields.”

She added: “Your track record of experience is of high repute, which has demonstrated that millions of Nigerians in the Diaspora are excelling in their various professions and continue to project a good image of the country.”

The Nigerian-American economic expert becomes the first-ever president of the foundation.

Adeyemo, 39, will lead “the implementation of the organisation’s strategic plan and managing its organisational structures and functions.’’

Adeyemo was deputy national security adviser (NSA) for international economics during the administration of former President Obama.

He is reputed to have helped the US combat the global economic recession of 2008.

He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a Bachelor of Arts degree, before moving to Yale Law School, where he bagged his Juris Doctor (JD) for further studies in Specialised Law.
