“We Enjoy Unfettered Freedom Of Speech” – President Buhari

On Tuesday, September 27, President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the world that Nigeria today has unrestricted freedom of speech and active political discourse.

This was said by President Buhari yesterday in Abuja while receiving Letters of Credence from the ambassadors and high commissioners of six nations.

President Buhari reportedly reminded the diplomats that Nigeria’s strength lies in its variety and that the ongoing differences in opinions serve as further evidence of a robust democratic culture, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

”As you settle down to your diplomatic responsibilities, you will realise how diverse Nigeria is. We are not only multi-ethnic and religious but also multi-cultural.

“We enjoy unfettered freedom of speech and engage in robust political discourses. Sometimes, the nature of these discourses, tend to give the impression that we are constantly opposed to each other.

“The reality is that there is so much that bind us together than the few areas of our divergence. I have no doubts in my mind that you will soon appreciate our uniqueness and indeed resilience as a people, as well as our diversity which constitutes our strength.”he said

President Buhari was presented with letters of credence from the following ambassadors and high commissioners: Mr. Gangadharan Balasubramanian (India), Mrs. Annett Gunther (Germany), Mr. Mohamed Yousif Ibrahim Abdelmannan (Sudan), Mrs. Gerengbo Yakivu Pascaline (Democratic Republic of Congo), Abdullah M. A. Abu Shawesh (State of Palestine), and Mr. Willem Wouter Plomp (The Kingdom of Netherlands) presented their Letters of Credence to President Buhari.
