Nengi meets Bayelsa governor’s wife

Big Brother Naija Nengi Hampson

Big Brother Naija star Rebecca Hampson, popularly known as Nengi, on Wednesday met with wife of Bayelsa State governor Gloria Diri.

It comes after Governor Duoye Diri replaced the reality TV star with Niger Delta University (NDU) first-class law graduate Ebizi Eradiri as the face of Bayelsa girl child.

The 23-year-old shared pictures of herself and Mrs Diri on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Had an amazing time as usual with my Mummy…  Mrs Gloria Diri, Bayelsa State First Lady,” she wrote.

Ms Eradiri was named face of Bayelsa girl child by Governor Douye Diri on Monday.

This followed backlash from Bayelsans after Big Brother Naija star Nengi was given the role in November 2020.

According to a statement by the governor’s chief press secretary Daniel Alabrah, Eradiri was offered scholarship for further studies and employment at the NDU law faculty.

Nengi on Tuesday congratulated Eradiri and promised to work together on forging better welfare for the girl child in Bayelsa.

“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,” she wrote.
