The process of naming figures for statuary hall should be a competitive one where an advert is placed on the national newspaper describing the art required and all artists are given an opportunity to apply. After receiving the applications of the various arts drawn they the vetting board must cross examine to identify the best drawings which have the national figure. When few applicants are now remaining say ten of them, they are supposed to be interviewed to understand their motives. The criteria must be an art work that has a national image and able to deliver specific message not only about a state but for the whole nation at large.
