ON­LINE RE­AC­TIONS Se­nate screens am­bas­sado­rial nom­i­nees

Not be­ing able to re­cite your na­tional an­them and or na­tional pledge may not pre­vent a bud­ding diplo­mat from be­ing ap­pointed to the po­si­tion, but it's an ex­tremely care­less man­ner of nurs­ing am­bi­tion. As you as­pire to a po­si­tion do so well by mak­ing your route clear and be seen to be do­ing so. The de­part­ment whose duty is to raise them should have made the two im­por­tant pro­to­cols ways of show­ing patriotism to pre­cede their early morn­ing brief­ings. If a diplo­mat­i­cally sound per­son is asked to re­cite them and they fail, you will feel like sink­ing down in dis­ap­point­ment, won't you?

It's a shame my friend. It shows that true Nige­ri­ans are scarce in Nige­ria.

I am sur­prised many Nige­ri­ans are not pa­tri­otic and they don't re­ally care about Nige­ria all they are af­ter is what they can get from Nige­ria and not what they can do to help Nige­ria.

Anx­i­ety can turn someone into a nonen­tity at times. This morn­ing I asked two school chil­dren, one af­ter the other, who al­ways sang the na­tional an­them up to five times daily to do so but they blun­dered be­cause they were not ex­pect­ing it. The same thing may have hap­pened to th­ese two nom­i­nees.

Peace Ichipi I don't think peo­ple with their coun­try in mind can't re­cite the na­tional an­them.

But it’s sim­ple and dif­fi­cult at the same time, is harsh, if they have some qual­i­ties just al­low them Cox if you want to screen with this ques­tion Na­tion’s Pledge it will be zero es­cape within the con­fer­ence

Re­cite or not it doesn't mat­ter, what is im­por­tant is the qual­ity of the am­bas­sador, pe­riod
