We rejected 82-year-old ambassadorial nominee because of national anthem, others – Senate

The Senate has dismissed reports that it failed to confirm the nomination of 82-year-old retired judicial officer, Justice Sylvanus Nsofor, as an ambassador due to his old age.

Rather the Senate said it took the decision not to confirm Nsofor following his failure to recite the National Anthem, his view of computer literacy, and his apparent disrespect for the senate.

“His responses to the issues raised were either not answered or devoid of details and mostly satirical. For instance, we asked him to recite the National Anthem and he said we should have sent him a syllabus. A member of the committee asked him, if he knew about IT (and) he asked what is IT? And I told him Information Technology and he said, “it’s for your age, not mine.

“Also when asked if he was not too old, he said we should go and ask Mugabe who is still working. He has shown his temperament,” the Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, told Senate about Nsofor while presenting a 51-page report on the screening of the 47 nominees.
