The Bayelsa State Government has cleared the air on the recent appointment of former BBNaija housemate, Nengi Hampson as face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
The State Government made this known following recent social media reactions after it appointed Ebizi Blessing Eradiri as the face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
However in a chat with BBC Pidgin, the Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa State Governor, Daniel Alabrah, stated that Nengi has not been fired nor replaced.
According to him, Nengi and Eradiri will work together in promoting the Girl Child in the state.
“Nengi is from the entertainment sector and as such she can function perfectly there. While Miss Eradiri will function in the education sector. This is for them to inspire and encourage young women from the state. It is wrong for people to speculate and politicise everything,” he said.
TheNewsGuru recalls that in November 2020, Nengi was appointed as the special assistant to the governor alongside former housemate, TrikyTee.
