Nigeria Needs US Mentorship On Democracy, Says Akpabio


The President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has called for intensive collaborations between Nigeria and the United States.

He made the call while addressing a delegation from the American embassy in Nigeria, led by the Chargé d’Affaires, David Greene.

While noting the role of the United States in entrenching democracy and democratic values across the world, Akpabio urged America not to be tired of playing the big brother role.

“I am a believer in the American democracy and I ask that you continue to offer assistance to Nigeria and other countries as we walk our way up the ladder of democracy,” Akpabio said.

Greene said his team was seeking collaborative efforts with the Nigerian Senate on multiple fronts.

Greene said, “We came here today to pay a courtesy call on the Senate President to congratulate him and also in hopes that we can find ways to work together for the collective good of the Nigerian people.”
