It was in November, 2020 that the Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri appointed [BBNaija star] Nengi as the Face of Girl-child in Bayels. Now, Nengi and Blessing Eradiri have the same mandate — following the appointment of the latter for the same job.
Nengi’s appointment generated controversy as some people felt that it was not right to put her in that position. Many regarded her as a BBNaija product that took part in an immoral show. But that is the opinion of a category. Many people see the show as sheer entertainment. Bayelsa State Governor has clarified that he appointed Nengi to influence Bayelsa girls in the entertainment industry, her area.
The governor has recently appointed a law graduate named Barr. Blessing Eradiri who got double 1st class — one from the university she attended and another, from Law School.
The Bayelsa State Governor gave her a scholarship and ordered for her immediate employment as a lecturer in the State University.
The news quickly made headlines as fans of BBNaija star Nengi felt that she was being stripped of her position.
However, the governor clarified that both of them will work together in their capacity as the Face of the Girl-child in Bayelsa State.
It will be interesting to watch how Nengi and Bar. Blessing Eradiri will work together because they are from two different worlds — the entertainment world and the academic world.
While Nengi took part in the 2020 BBNaija lockdown edition which displayed contents considered to be immoral and not for kids, Barr. Blessing is a sterling example of academic excellence which is most desirable by parents.
