Drama ensued on Tuesday as the Senate began the screening of the 47 ambassadorial nominees sent to it by President Muhammadu Buhari for legislative approval as some of the nominees could not recite the national anthem and pledge.
The drama stated during the exercise when members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs chaired by Senator Monsurat Sunmonu asked some of the nominees to recite the national anthem and the national pledge. Mrs Vivian Okeke started off well but missed her lines in the process.
However, it was going well until the final stages of the anthem when some of the nominees stuttered and missed their lines. It wasn’t a big deal though, but it elicited laughter from the senators.
