Vivian Okeke Fails To Recite National Anthem, Pledge


THE Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs has begun the screening of Ambassadorial nominees forwarded to the Senate by President Muhammadu Buhari.

There was, however, drama as two of the nominees, who appeared before the Senator Monsurat Sunmonu-led committee could not recite properly stanzas of the National Anthem and the Pledge.

One of the nominees, Vivian Okeke, from Anambra State failed when she was asked to sing the National Anthem.

During her screening, Mrs Okeke was asked by Monsurat Summonu, the chairman of the committee, to sing the National Anthem. Mrs Okeke during the recital, mumbled the last stanza of the National Anthem but was aided by a member of the committee, Senator James Manager.

She was the first nominee to be screened of the 47 ambassadorial nominees.

However, the nominee said the three major changes that should be made must be in the area of fighting corruption, insurgency and diversification of the economy.

She also said that returnees should be received when the country puts in effort, even as she stressed the need for the country to look into the area of financing and salary payments.
