The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced the appointment of five new Chargé D’affaires and 12 Consuls General to the country’s mission to some countries across the world.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Tuggar charged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria in a statement on Tuesday by Alkasim Abdulkadir, his Special Assistant on Media and Communications Strategy.

While asserting that they were pivotal to the economic drive of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, he further stressed that as seasoned career diplomats, they should shun the act of politicking and recommit themselves to their calling of diplomacy for the collective interest and development of Nigeria.

Reacting on behalf of the new appointees, the just appointed Consul General for the Consulate in New York, Ambassador Abubakar Jidda, reiterated the commitment of his colleagues to uphold the ethos of the profession and pledged to bring the much-needed investments to the country.
