‘American Corners’ serve as regional resource centres for information and programs highlighting American culture, history, current events, and government.

According to a statement on the US government official website, www.state.gov, the country’s Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open American Corner Lekki.

The statement said, “This new addition to the United States’ global American Spaces network, consisting of over 600 cultural and information centres in more than 140 countries, marks the commencement of the 20th-anniversary celebrations of American Corners.

“American Corners, part of the American Spaces network, supported by local partners, is a crucial aspect of the United States’ people-to-people engagement strategy. It aims to expand access to education, economic opportunity, equity, and societal inclusion.

“American Corner Lekki represents the future of the American Spaces network, providing local communities with easy access to U.S. culture, English-language learning opportunities, internet services, as well as advising services for studying in the United States, skills, professional development programs, and training.\
