SEXY singer, Adokiye Khiran has rubbished stories making the rounds in the social media that she was recently appointed a youth ambassador by the Imo State governor, Chief Anayo Rochas Okorocha.
In a statement forwarded to ENCOMIUM Weekly on Thursday, November 7, 2013, the sexy singer who trained as an architect, wondered why a story that is not true will find itself in the media. Although Adokiye admitted paying a courtesy visit to Imo State Government days back, she stated categorically that it wouldn’t have amounted to being appointed ambassador by the governor.
She said: “I want to use this medium to clear the air. I didn’t grant any interview (on my appointment), so I’m really flabbergasted at all the stories and confusion going around. First, I will state that I visited Imo State with Ambassador Lorenzo Onwukwem and Miss Ibinabo under the auspices of The Youth Decides to find out first-hand what development and policies Imo State has achieved within a short period which would be replicated in other states. I came back from Imo State, which is my state of origin after our visit where we were privileged to meet the Executive Governor, the Honourable Speaker, the Chief of Staff, amongst others…I have not granted any interview that the governor has appointed me Imo Youth Ambassador. People sending my pictures here and there, to me is funny. Whatever you do on earth, good or bad, you will have haters. So thanks to my detractors for making me more known. I want to state categorically that I stand for decency, charity, perfection, integrity and a believer of my creator’s words.
“I recently got nominated as a United Nation’s Peace Ambassador shortly before I made that trip. So, I’m sure there is a mix up somewhere.”
Semi-nude photographs of the beautiful artiste had gone viral on the internet after the false news of her appointment as Imo State Youth Ambassador. Many had even started questioning why the Imo State Governor would go for Adokiye who in their estimation, does not portray the Imo youth in good light, going by the sexually explicit pictures of hers which internet rats were circulating around.
But to put the record straight, Adokiye has now cleared the air on the controversy, explaining she actually visited Imo State with The Youth Decides team, but was not at anytime given appointment by Governor Rochas Okorocha.
