Actress Nkiru Sylvanus’s appointment as Special Assistant to the Imo State governor on Lagos Affairs attracted derision when it was announced last year. Just what the job entails is unknown to many. But the actress no longer has the job.
She has another one from the same source. Whispers learnt that Governor Rochas Okorocha has elevated Nkiru to Senior Special Assistant, SSA, on Public Affairs. The actress gave a hint of that in a post on her Facebook wall recently.
There have been rumours that her appointment was based on an unspecified relationship with governor, a development that forced her into a reaction on Facebook early last week:
“It is so unfortunate that people can sit down and concoct false stories. During the elections in Imo state, I was all over the state attending every major campaign event for Governor Okorocha.
Then, people did not talk about my relationship with him. Lo and behold, an announcement is made and the rumour mill starts working overtime. All of a sudden, I am sleeping with a man I look up to as a mentor and father.”
