Bayelsa state governor, Senator Duoye have given the former Big Brother Naija housemates of 2020, Hampson Nengi and Tarimotimi Sinclair popularly known as Trickytee in the show both from Bayelsa state a political appointment

Nengi was appointed to be the Senior Special Assistant on Girl Child Development while Trikytee as a Senior Special Assistant.

The appointment provoked so many reactions on social media, especially on Twitter as many believed they are not fit for the appointment.

Some asserted Nigeria has a long way to go if entertainers should be getting appointment while the qualified ones are left behind.

However, fans of the duo congratulated them and wished them well.

See reactions below:

Dr Dipo Awojide, @OgbeniDipo tweeted, “I like many of these BBNaija folks, but I don’t know why many of you are celebrating state governments dishing out Senior Special Assistant appointments.

SSA on what exactly? And why? Do these reality tv stars have the qualification and competence? We’ve got a long, long way to go.”

Another Twitter user, @maniac8989 said, “Everyone is shifting in their pants Cos two young BBNaija housemates were made special assistants or whatever.

If you were offered the same position would you say: “Sir I can’t accept this position Cos I think I’m not qualified and there’s someone out there better”.

@Morris_Monye said, “We must hold our govt to account. The appointment of a few BBNaija stars as SSAs must be questioned.

What is their job function? What is their pedigree? What is expected of them in that role? Integrity is a currency for Leadership.”

@adetolaov tweeted, “Public funds should never be used to support celebrities, whether in giving political appointments or giving them gifts (money, cars or houses).

"Public funds should ONLY be used for public services and governance. This is a principle we must all agree on even if we like the celebs.”

@ulxma said, “So you people oppose bad governance and corruption, but you’re in support of the government using taxpayers’ money to sponsor/reward private individuals and give vague appointments to celebrities?

Are you aware that that is illegal in every society that is sane?”

@Sxmto_ said, “A Governor can legit be owing Civil servants like 5 months salary but he will carry 10 million Naira & dash a former BBN housemate who originates from his state & still dash them one kind useless appointment.

We need to set our priorities right in this country.”
