Two ambassadorial nominees have made the headlines for failing to excel at the recitation of the Nigerian National Anthem.

According to multiple reports, the Anambra State nominee, Vivian Nwunaku Okeke and her counterpart from Niger State, Ibrahim Isa failed woefully in reciting the Nigerian national anthem.

According to a report by Daily Trust, the screening of the ambassadorial nominees took a dramatic turn when Okeke and Isa couldn't recite the National anthem and pledge properly.

The report revealed further that when the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, asked the nominees, to recite the national anthem, they didn't only mix it up but were saved by Senator James Manager of the Delta South Constituency.

The screening of the 47 career foreign service officers submitted for consideration as Ambassadors by President Muhammadu Buhari kicked off on July 26, 2016.
