Nigerian Celebrities That Have Been Granted Political Appointments

Published

 

on

Over the years, various celebrities in the country have been invited by their state governments to receive political nominations. We cannot dispute that there are certain possibilities for fame.

As a celebrity, a policy position in one’ s state means that its government recognizes and recognizes the celebrities for their impacts.

Therefore in this post, Naija News 247 will examine three famous celebrities who have been appointed politically in their states.

Zubby Michael

The actor born in Anambra is one of those actors who captivated millions of hearts by his prowess in performing.

Zubby has done much for himself since his entry into the Nigerian film business a few years ago, and he has become one of Nigeria’ s most successful performers in the recent years.

He’ s most famous for his role as a ” bad man” in movies, which made him one of Nigeria’ s most wanted actors.

In 2019, when Zubby was named the Anambra State Governor’ s Special Media Advisor, Willie Obiano, he added a new feather to his hat.

Zubby continues to be the governor’ s media SA. We cannot tell him what the future holds in politics for now, after having been appointed to the administration by Willie Obiano.

Ini Edo

In 2020, the outstanding actress, Udom Emmanuel, was reappointed as the tourism specialist assistant to the government of Akwa Ibom. In 2016 she was nominated for the first time.

We have to recognize that it was possible to re- appoint because she was well placed when she was originally appointed. Activists still serve Akwa Ibom, the state- born actress.

Gedoni Ekpata

In the 2019 Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem season, Gedoni was one of the housemate.

The performance brought him various chances, one of which was appointed by his state government as a political figure.

Gedoni comes from the state of Cross Rivers and was named Governor Ben Ayade Special Assistant to the garment and branding industry in 2020.

Several people might wonder why celebrity appointments are prevalent in these days, but the fact is that engaging these people in the government really has become a method for political activism.

We condemn taking more than one wife, but find it respectable to marry one and secretly cheat with many — Yul Edochie’s brother, Uche (Video)

We condemn marrying more than one wives, but find it respectable to marry one and cheat with many — Yul Edochie's brother, Uche (Video)

Brother of a famous Nollywood actor, Uche Edochie, weighs in on the unending backlashes trailing Yul Edochie after taking a second wife.

It would be recalled that the marriage of Yul Edochie with the first wife had been through staggering points following the announcement of the second wife.

In a lengthy post via Instagram, Uche slammed society for worshipping lies than facing the truth.

He questioned which is better between a man marrying more than one wife legally or a man secretly cheating on his only wife.

“What is more admirable between honesty and deception? Most people will tell you that it is honesty and even proceed to quote a part of scripture that says, ‘The truth shall set you free’.

But none of this is true though. Society does not value honesty and the truth will only make you enemies. It doesn’t set you free. Not on this planet. If we all went around speaking our minds, we will either end up dead or in jail. We are encouraged to tell the truth but vilified when we do. Isn’t that something?

So we lie to our wives, husbands, parents, children and all of society. We lie to protect them because we know that they cannot handle the truth. That is why we lie.

yul edochie

The most controversial thing you can do today is not killing, cheating or stealing. Society does this everyday enmass. The most controversial thing you can do is to tell the truth. A lie is like a bottle of soda. It tastes good but it isn’t good for us.

Truth on the other hand is like quinine. The taste is horrible but healthy and curative. That is why we have adverts of your coca colas and pepsis plastered all over the world but not quinine. A lie simply tastes better.

And this my friends is why we celebrate cheaters and attack truth tellers. We consider it more respectable for a man to marry one wife and quietly cheat on her with multiple women than for him to marry two or more of these women, making his feelings for them official and respectable.

It seems to me that the issues we face in life are not because we are imperfect humans. We struggle as a society simply because we cannot handle the truth.”

In a follow-up video, Uche Edochie quizzed his fans on whether or not society should condemn a mistake or should the mistake be worked on.
