asked by Monsurat Summonu, the
chairman of the committee, to sing the
National Anthem. Mrs Okeke during
the recital, mumbled the last stanza of
the National Anthem but was aided by a member of the committee, Senator
James Manager.
She was the first nominee to be
screened of the 47 ambassadorial
However, the nominee said the three major changes that should be made
must be in the area of fighting
corruption, insurgency and
diversification of the economy.
She also said that returnees should be
received when the country puts in effort, even as she stressed the need
for the country to look into the area of
financing and salary payments.
