“After every town hall meeting we usually obtain the contacts of all the Igbos in attendance and add them to an existing whatsapp platform where they are free to interact and discuss the way forward and based on the feedback, these people who were previously aloof became convinced and excited especially as the leaders of Igbo Kwenu 4 Asiwaju have maintained consistency in driving the message home about Asiwaju/Shettima presidential project”, she said.
