On Tuesday, an entertainment blog reported that Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus had lost her appointment with the Imo State Government.
I heard from very reliable sources that actress Nkiru Sylvanus has lost her appointment as the special assistant to governor Rochas Okorocha on Lagos Matters. Yes, there’s a position like that! 🙂
The Abia state born actress had been battling several people since her appointment last year, who felt she didn’t deserve the position as a non-Imo state indigene and also because they felt the appointment was meaningless and unnecessary as they didn’t understand her job specification.
They also felt she got the appointment because of her ‘friendship’ with the governor and not because she knew anything about running a public office. These people worked tirelessly to get her out of government house, and if what I’m hearing is correct, they’ve succeeded.
The above report is completely false . It will be recalled that in July, the State Government announced a minor cabinet reshuffle and Nkiru Sylvanus stepped into the position of Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Affairs. Shortly after resuming in Owerri, she told IMO STATE BLOG that she considered the new appointment as an opportunity for her to do what she enjoyed doing most (Interacting with people).
On what her assignment has been like over the past few months, Sylvanus says she is continuously mapping out new strategies on how to make the most out of her portfolio in the interest of the state. She reassured Imolites that Governor Okorocha was passionate about improving the lives of citizens.
“I tell people that His Excellency is a man saddled with the burden of turning things around for the masses..” She said.
Nkiru who just returned from vacation in Dubai did not take the false report lightly. Responding to IMO STATE BLOG, she lashed out at the blogger.
“I am aware that one fake, jobless blogger called Linda ikeji has been peddling news about me saying I lost my appointment with Imo State Government.
For the records, I was the Lagos Liason Officer, SSA Lagos Affairs which has been taken over by Lisa and I am now SSA on Public Affairs. And this happened 5 months ago when there was a cabinet reshuffle. For my fans who still love and believe in me, God will always be faithful. For those who want my down fall, sorry I am the wrong person because I stand tall and strong. ” – Nkiru Sylvanus
