Nigerian Octogenarian Resumes As Ambassador In USA.

Retired Justice Sylvanus Adiewere Nsofor has resumed in Washington D.C as Nigeria's Ambassador to the United States. This is coming months after his controversial performance at the Senate screening.

The 82-year-old retired judicial officer, Justice Sylvanus Nsofor, who told a Senate panel that Information Technology was not meant for people of his age and failed to recite the National Anthem.
A formal reception in his honor was held at the Embassy on Monday with the wife of the vice president, Dolapo Osinbajo and other dignitaries in attendance.

Justice Nsofor, who retired from the judiciary in 2005 and came in frail and feeble for the Senate screening, had also dismissed questions about his capacity to work when he directed the senators to “go and ask Robert Mugabe who is still working.”

The 83 years old Justice was later confirmed by the senate after he was re-nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari. He retired as a Justice of Court of Appeal after clocking the mandatory retirement age of 70.
