Nengi Hampson has been replaced with Ebizi Blessing Eradiri, a first class graduate of law at the Niger Delta University (NDU) who also achieved the same feat at the Nigerian Law School. Governor Diri made the announcement on Monday, January 11; that Ebizi Blessing Eradiri is the ‘New Face of Bayelsa’
This came after many Nigerians faulted the appointment of the reality show star; saying that it was an act of “rewarding an ‘unserious’ venture at the expense of work and academic excellence”.
They also pointed out that Eradiri has not only made Bayelsans proud, but the entire Izon nation with her excellent performance at the Niger Delta University and the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus.
Gov. Diri also offered Ebizi automatic employment as a lecturer at Faculty of Law, Niger Delta University.
Diri condemned the politicization of Nengi’s appointment and stated that his administration’s investments in the education sector would remain a top priority.
Meanwhile, Nenji has congratulated Eradiri in a post on her social media handle.
