So the Special Assistant to the President on New Media says he will not attend a New Media conference.. Because Bobrisky is on the same panel.
We like Bashir Ahmad. He’s a fine young man – who appears to do his work with a charming single mindedness.
But, sorry, dude, that don’t make sense.
The New Media and Governance Conference is organized by Enough is Enough Nigeria, BudgIT and Paradigm Initiative Nigeria. This consortium of serious minded organizations has made a common sense decision in convening a panel on Social Media Unusual inviting Nigeria’s latest social sensation.
To say no because of ‘morality’ and because of religion is ridiculous.
It’s your job to understand the culture and to engage with social.
