ADF provides items to Awo-omamma Community Hospital (ACH) after renovating the facility.

On 30th June 2016, a WhatsApp group was created by UK-based illustrious Awo-omamma son Chief Valentine C Akudinobi,  after his discussion with his brother Chief Tony Akuneme. An Interim Executive was set up immediately to help fine-tune the dream of Chief Akudinobi and Co-founder Chief Akuneme. The Interim Exco was led by Tony Akuneme, and they achieved amongst other things in 2016:

1. Conversion of the once WhatsApp group to a formidable association

2. Creation of ADF constitution

3. ADF incorporation as an association, at the Corporate Affairs Commission CAC, Abuja

4. The first ADF convention

5. The first edition of Omamma Voice magazine

6. Youth Empowerment Program 2016

7. Conducted an election that produced the GLORIOUS EXCO

The Glorious Exco took office on the 31st December 2016 comprised of former members of the Interim who were elected into offices to continue their roles and a few additions and then a reform that gave:

Chief Tony Akuneme – President
