Speak­ing when he ap­peared be­fore the Se­nate Com­mit­tee on For­eign Af­fairs along­side the Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs, Ge­of­frey Onyema, he said the gov­ern­ment would send the sec­ond batch of am­bas­sado­rial nom­i­nees to cap­ture states that were not rep­re­sented in the first list.

In his con­tri­bu­tion, the Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs, Ge­of­frey Onyema, said the is­sue of non rep­re­sen­ta­tion of some states would be taken care in the next list. He said there was no se­cret agenda on the selec­tion, ad­ding that the nom­i­nees were se­lected based on ex­pe­ri­ence, records of ser­vice and capacity.
