Plateau State governor Simon Lalong has appointed Efe Ejegba, winner of the just concluded Big Brother Naija, as Ambassador for Entertainment and Creative Industry.
According to a statement released and signed by Emmanuel Nanle, the state Director of Press and Public Affairs, the governor noted that the appointment of the Delta State-born Efe is a call to all citizens of the state to ensure they place value on the common humanity of her citizens in a multicultural and cosmopolitan setting.
The statement reads:
“The Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has congratulated Mr. Michael Ejegba popularly known as ‘Efe’ on his emergence as the Winner of the Big Brother Naija (BBN) TV Reality Show.
According to the Governor, the victory of Efe is a further prove of the brotherhood, excellence, courage and determination that characterizes the Plateau spirit.
“It would be recalled that the governor had on Friday, the 7th April, 2017, called on all Plateau citizens to stand in solidarity with Efe by voting and mobilizing others to vote for the homegrown actor, who was on the verge of joining the team of successful Plateau citizens who have won the TV Reality event in the past.
“The Governor also used the opportunity of Efe’s victory to call on all citizens of Plateau State, to ensure that the value they place on the common humanity of her citizens in a multicultural and cosmopolitan setting, is always seen in the unity of purpose exhibited by all in the collective pursuit of a common goal.
“The Governor added that though Efe is by ethnic extraction from Delta State, Plateau is proud to lay claim to his entire life’s orientation having been groomed for excellence in life with the values that distinguish the Plateau person,” the state said.
