Adams was sworn in at Times Square, New York on Saturday following the New Year’s Eve ball drop.
The incoming Mayor made the announcement after he met with the current New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio.
Chairman, Board of the Organisation for the Advancement of Nigerians (OAN), Mr Yinka Dansalami, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in New York that Nigerians in the U.S. “are politically conscious and active.”
Adams disclosed this at the Meet and Greet Fundraiser for the 2021 New York City Mayoral Election organised by the Nigerian-American Community in New York.
Adams, in his acceptance speech at the endorsement ceremony held at the Kudirat Abiola Corner in New York, promised to deliver on his campaign promises, especially as concerns involving Africans, especially Nigerians in his government if elected.
Adams gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in New York on the sidelines of a debate convened by The Nigerian Forum.
The debate was convened by The Nigerian Forum, a coalition of the Organisation for the Advancement of Nigerians and Nigerian-Americans Public Affairs Committee, a political action committee.
