Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State again has shown that he has a strong tie with Actresses. Months after sacking Actress, Nkiru Sylvanus as his Special Assistant on Lagos Affairs, he has appointed another Nollywood actress into his cabinet.
The lucky actress is 25 year-old ex-Delta Soap model, Shirley Igwe. She’s now Okorocha’s Principal Protocol Officer. Her new appointment would entail her coordinating the governor’s daily itinerary, ensuring his comfort and that of his visitors. Shirley has since resumed duties.
With this appointment, tongues are already wagging about His Excellency’s penchant for actresses especially fair-complexioned ones.
Recall that actress, Nkiru Sylvanus was the first to be appointed into Okorocha’s cabinet as the state’s Liaison officer in Lagos before she was later redeployed to Owerri, after which she was relieved of her job. One hopes that Shirley will make the difference.
