TRUMP APPOINTS NIGERIAN, OGUNLESI INTO HIS ECONOMIC ADVIDORY TEAM.. 

The Nigerian community in U.S. has specially lauded the appointment of Bayo Ogunlesi by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump into his Economic Advisory Team, saying it could signal a positive trend for Africa.Spokesperson for the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the UN, Pastor Akinremi Bolaji, said Ogunlesi’s appointment was a positive development for Nigeria and Africa.

 “Speaking as a Nigerian, it is a good indication and positive development for Africa and Nigeria that we are among the best brains everywhere.”It is also to show you that one in every five Blacks is a Nigerian

Ogunlesi has to see himself as a representative of the Black race as the only Black man that made the list by further distinguishing himself.”I advise him to use his opportunity well and he should bring together people of integrity who will not smearhis integrity.”Bolaji said the younger generation has a lot to learn from his distinction, adding “journalists have a lot to do to tell us how he was able to weather the storm and got recognised worldwide.”It also shows that the best economic brains are scattered everywhere in Nigeria. We have the Dangotes in the North, Jim Ovias and Tony Elumelus in the East and South South and Otedola in the West, and now Ogunlesi.”If we put our house together, we have people all over the world and at home who have all it takes for us to succeed,” Bolaji said.NAN recalls that Ogunlesi, who is the chairman of Global Infrastructure Partners, a private equity firm and one of Fortune 500 companies, was named a member of an economic advisory forum to Trump.The 63-year-old Nigerian is the only African face in the 16-man team.”President-elect Donald J. Trump today announced that he is establishing the President’s Strategicand Policy Forum,” said a press release from Blackstone published byBusiness Insider.The Forum, which is composed of some of America’s most highly respected and successful business leaders, will be called upon to meet with the president frequently to sharetheir specific experience and knowledge as the president implements his plan to bring back jobs and ‘Make America Great Again’.
