Parliament was thrown into ecstasy when the appointment committee vetting the President's nominee for Lands, Forestry and mines, Prof. Dominic Fobih, posed a question, “Can you please recite the National Pledge?” Professor Dominic Fobih sat there speechless while the entire appointment committee members gazed at him with surprise although he had performed creditably initially. The Chairman of the Committee, Freddie Blay, came to his rescue by reciting the National Pledge. The Minority Leader Alban Bagbin explained the reason behind the question as an idea to imbibe in Politicians the importance of being guided by the words of the National Pledge and Anthem “it will also encourage others to do same.” “It is a sign of Patriotism when one recites and has knowledge of the National Pledge. It inspires goodwill on the part of Politicians and Ghanaians in general” Bagbin said.
