Dear members of Fako America,
I am glad to announce that the 21st convention of Fako America concluded last weekend in Tampa, Florida and it was a resounding success. Delegates flew into Tampa from all over the US and officially kicked off convention activities on Friday June 26 with a spectacular cultural show. In a rare event, children under the age of 16 had a slot to learn and construct complete sentences in the Bakweri vernacular amongst other activities. This was an interesting event to behold and we plan to keep doing more of these.
I want to heartily thank the FECA-FL for the wonderful reception and ceremony they gave us. This proves the point that if you have your sight set on uniting your people and promoting your culture, numbers can only be a minor setback. On behalf of all the delegates at the convention I want to also wholeheartedly thank Dr. Louise Jackai for heart-warming words of advice he gave the organization during his keynote address. He has also pledged his support to the new leadership of the organization to see it grow and flourish.
