Eze had appeared before the House for the screening when he was asked to recite the national pledge which he could not do properly.
He was also asked to recite the national anthem which he also failed.
Eze, who was the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Ishielu local government, was also asked by the
Speaker of the Assembly, Hon. Ogbonna Nwifuru, who presided over the sitting, to repeat the national pledge and anthem which he also failed, prompting Nwifuru to present a copy of the written anthem and pledge to enable him recite it properly.
But there was another mild drama when he could not recite the national anthem and national pledge with the written copy.
NewTelegraph reports that annoyed, the Speaker asked him to go back and study the National Anthem and National Pledge, describing it as embarrassment.
“How can a council chairman not recite National Anthem and National Pledge?
This House is surprised that as a council chairman, you cannot recite the anthem and pledge when you should be the one to teach your subordinates the anthem. So, go back and study them,” he told Eze.Despite his inability to recite the National Anthem and National Pledge, Eze was screened and confirmed by the House.
Meanwhile, the House screened and confirmed eleven chairmanship nominees in the state.
Their screening and confirmation followed the expiration of their tenure in office and their reappointment by Governor Dave Umahi. Twelve out of the 13 Caretaker Committee Chairmen were reappointed.
