Bayelsa State Governor appoints Nengi and Trikytee
The Bayelsa State governor, Senator Duoye Diri announced the appointments in Government House, Yenagoa, on Friday when the Bayelsa-born former housemate visited as part of her homecoming activities.
Also, in a statement by Alabrah, the Governor expressed satisfaction with Nengi’s conduct in the Big Brother's house.
Governor Diri said while the show could mean many things to different people, for Nengi it was an opportunity as a girl to aspire and become great in life.
While describing Nengi as the de facto winner of the show, the governor called on girls from the state to realize that there was so much they can achieve from various facets of life.
Diri said, “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.
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.”
He advised Nengi to continue to be of good character as experienced in the show, be humble and portray Bayelsa in good light wherever she goes.
The governor equally appreciated those that worked tirelessly and facilitated the support she enjoyed while on the show.

“I want to commend you, Your Excellency. You are doing a good job, and we are so lucky to have you as our governor. I’m equally here representing thousands of Bayelsa girls all over the world.
There are so many concerns that I have, but now that we would work together, I hope that we can do so much for the girl child.
