Governor Douye Diri has replaced BBNaija star, Rebecca Nengi Thompson, popularly known as Nnegi as Face of Bayelsa Girl Child with a First st Class Law graduate.
Diri made the announcement on Monday in Yenagoa, the state capital.
Recall that Nengi was appointed as the Face of Bayelsa Girl Child in November last year after she got evicted from the Big Brother Naija Lockdown 2020.
This appointment gave rise to an uproar among Nigerians, most especially activist, CharleyBoy who faulted the appointment.
Diri, however, appears to have yielded, replacing the celebrity with Ebizi Blessing Eradiri, a first class graduate of both Niger Delta University, Amassoma and the Nigerian Law School.
Eradiri has been awarded academic Scholarships for her Masters and Ph.D in any University in the World as well as automatic employment as a lecturer in the Faculty of Law, Niger Delta University.
Meanwhile, Nengi has congratulated the new Face of Bayelsa Girl Child on Twitter.
Her tweet reads; “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 doubt that we will both work together to see how we can front for a better welfare for the Girl child”.
