Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has removed BBN’s housemate, Nengi Hampson, as the Face of Bayelsa Girl Child and replaced her with Ebizi Blessing Eradiri, who graduated with a First Class Honours at both Niger Delta University, Amassoma and the Nigerian Law School.
Gov. Diri, made the announcement when he received her in his office in Yenagoa, on Monday, January 11.
Meanwhile, Eradiri has been awarded academic scholarships for her Masters and Ph.D in any University in the world as well as automatic employment as lecturer in the Faculty of Law, Niger Delta University.
Although no reason was given by the governor for the new change, it may not be unconnected to the criticism drawn by the appointment of Nengi.
Many Nigerians including activist CharleyBoy, faulted the appointment of Nengi and had called for the Eradiri, a Bayelsa-born First Class Law Graduate, who has not only made Bayelsans proud but the entire Izon nation on her excellent performance at the Niger Delta University and the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus.
