The Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, PMAN, on Thursday said that the Ministers of Information and Culture, and that of Labour and Employment, should engage them more in positively promoting Nigeria before the rest of the world.
The president of the association, Obi Casmir, made the call in his acceptance message saying that he was confident the Ministers would continue the good works they started during their first tenure in their respective Ministries.
“The music from Nigerian artistes is today one of our greatest gifts to the rest of the world.
“Both of you have been appointed once again to oversee sensitive, fragile and responsive ministries.
“This assignment at hand is a serious business coming at a time we musicians are making this country so proud globally, yet getting no recognition in our own dear country,” he said.
For his part, the PMAN President pledged that the Association would be partners in progress with government to hasten national development urging them to be selfless in the discharge of their responsibilities.
“We are, however, consoled by your antecedents as progressives who had been part of governance for a long time.
“The hope of musicians in Nigeria are high; with the expectation that in no time things will start falling in place as you both commence your second term in office,” he said.
