On Saturday September 2, 2017, Otun Asiwaju Sola Oluwole, a frontline community leader accompanied by Wazobia crew visited the city of Inkster which is located in Wayne County, Michigan United State on a fact-finding mission. The city is one of the Metro Detroit’s suburbs whose population is majorly African American with Byron Nolen as the Mayor.
The fact-finding team was welcomed to the city by Akindele Akinyemi, the Co- Founder of National African Business Association (NABA) a support group whose mission is to enhance urban development trade and investment between Africa and United States of America with city of Inkster as its flag city. He is also the Chairman of the Inkster Downtown Development Authority. In his welcome speech, he believes that the city of Inkster offers both local and international investors the opportunities to be part of the great things happening in the city and all hands must be on deck with a view to making good use of these opportunities.
Akindele took the team around the city, this provided the team the opportunity to see the enormous investment potentials in the city which is about 5-10 minutes’ drive from the Metro Airport as well as cities of Dearborn, Dearborn Height and Westland while cities of Detroit and Southfield are just miles away.
Five Africans are presently members of boards in the city which according to him is a welcome development.
