Defend Nigerians in diaspora, Jonathan urges new ambassadors
By Ben Agande

Abuja-President Goodluck Jonathan has urged the newly appointed ambassadors of the country to other nations to pursue national interest in their places of postings and to defend the interests of Nigerians resident there. 


While handing out letters of credence to 93 ambassadors, 88 of whom have successfully gone through the Senate screening, at the Presidential Villa, the President charged the ambassadors to see themselves as representatives of the president and not their ethnic nationalities.
He said: "You are posted to your designation to represent the president and not your state or your ethnicity, and project Nigeria as a united and indivisible nation. You must encourage Nigerians abroad to have a solid unions."
Of the diplomats who received their letters of credence, 62 of them are ambassadors while 24 are Deputy Heads of Mission. Their countries of accreditation were not made public at the occasion.
President Jonathan told the ambassadors that his decision to give prominence to career officers in the appointment of ambassadors was to enhance commitment to professional excellence.
He said economic diplomacy remains at the core of the nation's foreign policy and protecting Nigerians and their interest in their country of accreditation must be at the forefront.
He charged the envoys to give priority to the promotion of democracy, rule of law and stability in Africa and other nations.
Jonathan said: "Today, we live in an international environment that is characterised by rapid change, intense competition, and driven by knowledge and technology.
It is an exciting world in which only the best succeed. In such an environment, only a dynamic, confident and proactive foreign service can effectively and efficiently serve Nigeria's interests.
"As Nigeria's window to the outside world, our diplomatic service must necessarily raise its standards to match the best globally, both in the quality of service delivery and the professionalism of its staff.
"To build and sustain a corps of staff that can excel, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must accord priority to recruiting the best and ensuring the regular training of its diplomats."

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
