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
