WHAT'S THE REASON FOR THE OCCASION
Today, we are unveiling a book we published for Mr President titled "Transformation Agenda Mission in Progress Vol.2". The first volume was produced and sent to the public in his first year in office, so we thought this particular one should be launched.

It is more comprehensive with 108 pages in number, highlighting the Ministries and their achievements in the past two years.
HOW LONG HAS THIS FORUM BEEN IN EXISTENCE
We have been in existence since 2006 when President Yar'Adua was alive and after his death, we changed our name to Jonathan-Sambo Solidarity Forum.

We have Udoka-Director protocol, Manga Alexander-Youth leader, Chamberlain Feghabo-Deputy National Youth Leader and a host of others in the diaspora.

Yes, our association is within and outside the country. we have most of our diaspora members coming for the launch from China, Canada and America etc some are already seated.
HOW MUCH WILL THE BOOK BE SOLD FOR?
(laughs) The book will be given out for free and it is actually free with the intention that will get to the grass root.
