The Senate yesterday began the screening of the 47 ambassadorial nominees.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs is charged with the responsibility of screening the nominees.

Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, led the nominees to the screening venue.


But it was all drama as some of the nominees failed to recite the National Anthem and Pledge.

One of them could not say the capital of Lagos State as she insisted that the capital of Lagos is Lagos instead of Ikeja. Her answer threw the audience into a hilarious session for several minutes.

Some others wobbled and fumbled as they laboured to recite the National Anthem and Pledge.

Some of the committee members expressed embarrassment that career diplomats could not recite the country’s National Anthem.

Even when a committee member, Senator James Manager, gave one of the nominees a window of escape, the nominee could still not recite the National Pledge.

One of the committee members said: “What we saw today shows the quality of those we are sending to represent the country in other countries.”

The committee will submit its report to the Senate in plenary for final approval before the list will be sent back to President Muhammadu Buhari.
