Earlier, 1st News reported that Big Brother Naija star, Nengi Hampson was removed as the ‘Face of Bayelsa Girl Child’ following the appointment of the First-class graduate of Law, Ebizi Blessing Eradiri; the state government has come out to clarify the recent development in the state.
The State government debunked the annulment of Nengi’s appointment; instead, it was clarified that she would be establishing a partnership with Eradiri to help inspire young women.
Specifically, the state government made this known following reactions after it appointed Ebizi Blessing Eradiri as the face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
In a chat with BBC Pidgin, the Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa state governor; Daniel Alabrah, stated that Nengi has not been removed or 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.
Alabrah’s statement is coming on the heels of the report that Nengi was replaced by Eradiri as the face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
Meanwhile, Nengi has congratulated the First Class graduate and revealed that she is prepared to commence working with her.
Here is what she wrote;
Congratulations to Barr. Ebizi Eradiri.
It’s amazing how you were able to pull that thru!
Special thanks to my Governor for also finding her worthy for the honour.
It is without a doubt that we will both work together to see how we can front for better welfare for the Girl child,” she tweeted.
Recall in November 2020, the reality TV star was appointed as the special assistant to the governor alongside former housemate, TrikyTee.
