Renowned investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has reacted to the news that reality TV stars Nengi and Trikytee were appointed as Senior Special assistants to the Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri.
Recall that few days ago, Nengi and Trikytee retuned to their home state and they were appointed as Senior Special Assistants. Immediately after the news was announced, Nigerians congratulated them, however some people asked what area of the state affairs will the stars be ‘assisting’ in.
Olunloyo has on Monday, November 9 laid out her opinion as to why she doesn’t think their appointment as special assistants is a good idea. According to her their would be Clash of interest as the stars may have to choose between endorsement deals and contracts they are supposed to issue as assistants to the governor. She disclosed this in a video she posted on her Twitter page.
“There nothing wrong in getting political appointments, the governor can always choose what he wants you to do later
“However, it is not good for people like Trikytee and Nengi who just came out from BBNaija, a reality TV show, they are two different things… Why? There’s going to be conflicts of interests that you don’t see now
“… They should make them youth ambassadors to the state just like what Laycon got from the Ogun state government.”
