Remember this quote from a CNN article which I shared when President Trump banned Nigeria on a certain immigration class: “Nigerian immigrants in the US are considered one of the most successful and educated immigrant groups in the country.” You know what? CNN had edited that line out in its piece without any note or explanation. A Tekedia reader left a note that he/she could not see the quote in my reference. I checked, and it was true that it was gone. The author and the editor had “buyers’ remorse” for helping naija’s image!
You can read some online websites which captured the original article by searching the exact quote, “Nigerian immigrants in the US are considered one of the most successful and educated immigrant groups in the country.”. One is here. Sure, it is gone on CNN, but it is not erased.
If you care, webcache captured it here (image below).
