The Bayelsa State government has cleared the air regarding the appointment of reality star Nengi Thompson as the face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
In a chat with BBC Pidgin, the Chief Press Secretary to Bayelsa State governor, Daniel Alabrah disclosed that Nengi has not been removed or replaced.
He noted further that Nengi and Blessing are to work hand in hand 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.
This statement is coming following various reactions after the state appointed Blessing Eradiri as the face of the Bayelsa Girl Child.
In November 2020, the reality TV star was appointed as the special assistant to the governor alongside former housemate, TrikyTee.
