Outrage as Sports Minister Declares #BBNaija Efe Youth Ambassador
Solomon Dalung is catching a lot of flak again, this time for declaring #BBNaija Efe a Youth Ambassador.
Writing on his Facebook, the sports minister revealed that his office held a ceremony today where the Big Brother Nigeria star was honoured as an ambassador.
“Based on logistics’ I received Efe Ejeba, the Big Brother Naija Winner in the Ministry of Youth & Sports today. Efe being an influential young person full of passion and determination, we discussed among many areas of collaboration to engage young talents across the country,” Dalung wrote on his Facebook.
He continued, ““Who I be?” the popular saying of the Big Brother Naija Winner, Efe Ejeba is today a voice that reminds every young person that no matter your humble beginning, your dreams are valid! On this note, Efe Ejeba the winner of Big Brother Naija is today pronounced & decorated; “NIGERIA YOUTH AMBASSADOR”.”
While a few fans are sending #BBNaija Efe good wishes, many others are slamming the sports minister.
“See why entertainment would always be rated higher than your degree? Nigeria, a place of misplaced priorities,” said an upset Nigerian @janetamarhavwie. Another @shogbams, added, “Oga Minister, stop looking for cheap publicity. What’s the criteria… This people are clueless!!
The angry comments continue to pour in.
What do you think? Is this move by the minister for youth and sports a mistake or misplaced priority? Or do you think it is a wise move by the minister to take advantage of Efe’s current fame?
