Former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Dame Pauline Tallen, has turned down her nomination as an ambassador by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to her Facebook social media wall at the weekend, Tallen said: “I am fully committed to nation building and completely loyal to the Federal Republic of Nigeria as well as its leaders. I count myself privileged to serve our dear country as an ambassador of change.

However, family comes first and as such my decision is borne out of the love for my ailing husband who needs the support of his family. God bless Nigeria.”

She also appreciated the president for counting her worthy to serve Nigeria in the capacity of an ambassador. “It is a hard decision I had to take, but I have to, because he is my primary responsibility,” she said.

    You are a huge example of a virtuous woman, an African wife of note. God bless ma! May God restore your husbands health.

    Truly you are a massive epitome of womanhood in humility and trust. You have always shown exceptional character in leadership. Better opportunity will come when God desires it.

    Very exemplary of commitment.

    But just to digress, anyone with integrity must think hard before working for Buhari.

    That man wrecks good reputation.

    See Fashola and confirm my point.

    So how do these appointments get made. You are not aware u are being selected only to have your name read on the media. No check on your background, whether you pay taxes, whether you are already committed etc. Na wa for naija oh.
