Two ministerial nominees failed to recite the National anthem and pledge properly. The nominees, Ibrahim Isa from Niger state and Vivian Nwunaku Okeke from Anambra state mixed up the National Anthem and pledge when the chairman of the senate committee on Foreign Affairs, Monsurat Sunmonu asked them to recite it at the senate’s screening exercise for the 47 ministerial nominees today July 26th. Other senators present burst into laughter.
Senator James Manager who is a member of the committee saved them from the embarrassing moment by correcting them immediately.
