SHOCKER as Justice Sylvanus Nsofor, Ambassadorial Nominee Refuses To Recite National Anthem
The Senate house were left speechless on Wednesday at the screening of an 82 year old ambassadorial nominee, Justice Sylvanus Nsofor, by the Senate committee on Foreign Affairs.

This was as the ambassadorial nominee vehemently refused to recite the National Anthem as requested by the committee.

The Nation reports that a member of the committee, Senator Gbenga Ashafa (Lagos East), asked Justice Nsofor a couple of questions which included to recite the National Anthem.

Exhausted by the argument of the nominee and his determination not to recite the anthem, the committee asked Nsofor to take a bow and go.

Justice Sylvanus A Nsofor, a nominee from Imo State, was born on March 17, 1935 in Oguta, Imo State.

The name of the 82 year old nominee was forwarded to the Senate for screening and confirmation by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was a one-time Judge of the High Court of Nigeria, Justice of the Court of Appeal, and Lecturer in Law, Holborn College of Law, London.

It is not yet clear whether the committee will recommend the confirmation of Justice Nsofor.

Another ambassadorial nominee, Mr. Adeyinka Olatokunbo Asekun, unlike Nsofor answered all the questions posed to him by members of the committee.

Asekun's name was forwarded to the Senate by the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo for confirmation for ambassadorial posting.
