US welcomes Twitter return, says Nigeria has strong democratic future
Despite the challenges facing Nigeria, the future of the nation in the advancement of its democracy remained strong, the Public Affairs Counsellor, Embassy of the United States of America, Adnan Siddiqui, has said.
“You know, democracy is not perfect; even in the United States, we deal with ups and downs in terms of how much freedom people can actually benefit from. With freedom comes responsibility, you can’t say irresponsible things in the media if it hurts society and that is true of any country. Nigeria is a democracy and Nigeria is committed to having democratic values that are enshrined in its constitution and in the law.
“So we are trying to strike a balance, Nigeria is trying to strike a balance and as you noticed, Twitter came back in Nigeria and that was a very positive step forward and we welcome that.We are always for more freedom of expression.”Music used to douse national challengesRead more: Punch Newspapers »

US embassy, NGE advocate press freedom at workshop “You know, democracy is not perfect; even in the United States, we deal with ups and downs in terms of how much freedom people can actually benefit from.

We are always for more freedom of expression.” Music used to douse national challenges The US Public Affairs Counsellor said his country had always been interested in music as a means to communicate with other countries because music diplomacy has a long history in American foreign policy ever since the 1940s and 1950s. “We have had many music exchange programmes with Nigeria, since her independence. Before the COVID came, we were actually sponsoring American musicians to come and perform at various venues in Nigeria and we are waiting for COVID to end to be able to bring American artists safely to Nigeria to perform and we hope to have an American pianist come in March to perform in Lagos and in Abuja. “I believe that good music and good songwriting involves consciousness-raising on a variety of social and cultural, political and economic issues and so a lot of young people in Nigeria are very much impacted by what is going on in the country. “They want to speak out and we encourage freedom of expression in the United States and throughout the world, I think this is an opportunity for Nigerian musicians, songwriters and singers to be able to have the material means to produce their songs. That is why we are interested in investing in equipment to donate to this group.” Copyright PUNCH. All rights reserved.
