Recall that on Friday, November 6, the Bayelsa state governor, Duoye Diri, appointed BBNaija season 5 former housemates, Nengi and TrikyTee as his Senior Special Assistants.
A Nigerian lecturer has taken to social media and condemned the recent appointments of ex-BBNaija housemates into political offices.
Reacting to the development, a Nigerian lecturer identified as Dipo Awojide said such appointments show that Nigeria as a country still have a long way to go.
Laying emphasis on credibility, the lecturer particularly questioned the qualification and competence of the appointed reality stars.
He also berated the Bayelsa Sate governor for appointing the reality stars when he has been owing salaries of workers.
In his words, “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. You fucking can’t pay salaries! But you’re spending public money like a drug dealer!”
