The Bayelsa Governor appointed Triky Tee and Nengi as assistants.
Following criticisms that greeted its appointments recently the government of Bayelsa has cleared the air.
Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State has said that he gave an appointment to former BBNaija reality TV star, Nengi, to encourage girls in the state.
Nengi who participated in the Lockdown edition of the reality TV show was made the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Bayelsa Girl Child Development.
Also appointed by the governor is fellow former BBNaija star, Trikytee.
“On behalf of the people and government of Bayelsa State, I want to say that we are proud of you. Let our girls know that there is so much they can achieve in various facets of life,” Diri said about Nengi.
“Arising from your participation, we were told that if not for other factors, you are the de facto winner of the show. So you are welcome back home.
“We believe that now that you have been recognised nationally and internationally, you will be the face of Bayelsa and I hereby announce you as the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Bayelsa Girl Child Development.
“The same goes for your fellow ex-housemate, Tarimotimi Sinclair aka Trikytee. So both of you are hereby appointed Senior Special Assistants to the Governor.”
