It was a day of sharing knowledge without discrimination to any culture. King Eze welcomed all participants, expressing his joy for the opportunity of hosting the first event of it's in  Egwu na Orie. He thanked his ancestral relatives in the Diaspora for choosing their village for such event. “When we raised this concern on several media fora, the party, however, believed the high cost of form will separate the serious contenders from unserious ones.

Opening prayer was presented by De IK Njoku followed by the blessing of kolanut by Nze Patrick & later by HRM Eze Okey Adiukwu. Adaeze Eze (Ada Egwu na Orie) shared the history and relationship of Africans and their relations in the diaspora. The welcome poem and presentation was read by youth leader Victoria Rival and little Chikaodi Luke. “This goes contrary to our belief that you can only separate serious contenders from unserious ones by the competency, capacity, credibility, strength of the programme, workable solutions, and sellable candidate to Nigeria through rapid intraparty debates and other high-level criteria reviews that can ensure we present a better leader for future for Nigeria.
