Is Ini Edo working?

In 2016, Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, joined the league of Nollywood stars such as Kate Henshaw, Nkiru Sylvanus and Mercy Johnson Okogie holding political offices as Special Advisers to their state governors.

Ini, as she is fondly called by her close friends and colleagues, was appointed Special Adviser on Tourism & Culture in Akwa Ibom State by Governor Emmanuel Udoh.

It is more than a year since she got the appointment but nothing seems to be coming from the office of the movie star. And this calls for concern as the state, blessed with abundant tourism potentials is lying fallow and without any form of awareness about how to promote the cultural assets.

“If put in proper use, the tourism sector alone can generate much revenue for the government, but the person in charge seems to be at a loss as regards what to do with nature’s gifts to the state. One cannot point at any project the actress has embarked upon aside being in the governor’s entourage to functions, and this has left many wondering if that is all her job entails,” an agitated Akwa-Ibomite complained.
