Social commentator, Japhet Omojuwa, calls out the Federal Government for lacking the Spirit of excellence as reflected in a cake baked for a state ceremony where the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, and his wife, Lady Camilla, were hosted. Taking to his Instagram page, he wrote:
In a country blessed with some of the world’s best Pastry Chefs and Cake Designers, isn’t it tragic that this was what we ended up with at a State Ceremony? To start with, cakes aren’t even original to us so we didn’t have cause to have one at this event with the British Royals but if you going to show the skills that they didn’t send you, at least get the best players to show it. Especially as we know that this colourful rendition of the highest level of mediocrity must have cost a lot! Let me say it again, half of Nigeria’s problems will not be solved by budgetary provisions, it is about attitude and the right spirit. What was missing here is the Spirit of Excellence. It is not the first time. If I say, “I hope this would be the last time,” I know I’d be wasting my hope. Another simple thing deployed like its rocket science!
