Musician and activist Charly Boy has kicked against the appointment of 2020 Big Brother Naija housemate Nengi as senior special adviser (SSA) by Bayelsa State Governor Duoye Diri, Igbere TV reports.
The 70-year-old expressed his displeasure in an Instagram post on Tuesday, describing the appointment as misplaced priority.
According to Charly Boy, the reality TV star was appointed while a lady who reportedly graduated with a first-class degree in law from the Niger Delta University was neglected.
“THE IRONY OF THE NIGERIAN STATE. The young lady with white is a first-class graduate of the Niger Delta University, Faculty of Law, as well as a first-class graduate Nigeria Law School… she was not Honored by her Bayelsa State Government,” he wrote.
“In another development, a girl, who is alleged to be a Third Class Graduate and a participant(A Runner Up) in the “Big Brother Naija” show , was given a State Reception and was also Honored with a Government Appointment and was also declared the Role Model to the Bayelsa State Girl Child ( the Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child).”
Nengi was appointed SSA on girl child development by Governor Diri on November 6.
The University of Portharcourt graduate was also named the face of Bayelsa State.
Igbere TV reports that her fellow Big Brother Naija housemate Trikytee was also appointed as SSA.
Charly Boy is a television presenter, publisher and producer.
