|Minister Of Youth Development Denies Calling Karen Igho A Role Model by bovy: 10:57am On Aug 17, 2011|
The Minister of Youths Development, Bolaji Abdullahi, has refuted claims that the federal government has endorsed the winner of the just concluded Big Brother Amplified (BBA), Karen Igho, as a youth ambassador.
His message below;
"What I see here is a rising tendency to be sexist in this country in a way that is not acceptable," he said. “I mean someone won this competition last year and he was hailed and hosted everywhere like if he was a hero. We didn’t know what he did in that house. Now, because Karen is a woman, therefore she is what? If it was a man that went into that programme and did all the escapades, will we be treating him like this?”
What we did as a Ministry of Youth Development when we were informed that they will like to visit us, I mean, we welcomed them," said Abdullahi. "That does not mean the same thing as endorsing whatever she did or did not do. No one mentioned anything about role modelling. Nobody mentioned anything about being an ambassador.
The minister was said to have called Bigbrother amplified winner karen igho a role model to Nigerian Youths

Karen is no role model. well maybe for a prospective stripper, actually i find her rather trashy, what with her defense of her boo, b job, (she just couldnt choose a size 34 silicone cup) her troubled family(she was strugglin in Europe and had NO OTHER choice but to become a stripper) yahta yahta,
But i am prepared to overlook all these and cheer for her to recieve the same, if not better reception than the others had, afterall, she won BBA. I dont stand for marginalizing females.
