The Governor of Bayelsa state, Douye Diri, has removed reality TV star, Nengi Hampson, as the Face of Bayelsa Girl Child, and replaced her with Ebizi Blessing Eradiri, a 1st class law graduate.
Miss Eradiri is the first female First Class graduate from the Faculty of Law at the Niger Delta University (NDU), a feat she repeated at the Nigerian Law School.
However, no reason was given by the governor for the new change but it may not be unconnected to the criticism drawn by the appointment of Nengi.
Many Nigerians 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.
Some also argued that Eradiri has distinguished herself and should be the ‘Role Model’ to Bayelsa Youths.
However, Governor Giri took the bold step and announced Ebizi Blessing Eradiri as the New Face of Bayelsa on Monday, January 11, 2021.
While receiving her and her father, Boloupaye Eradiri, at the Government House, Yenagoa, Diri also gave her automatic employment to lecture at the NDU’s Faculty of Law.
