2018 Big Brother Naija housemate and actor, Ifiemi Angel Awotarigha, better known as Angel, has declared his intention to join the Bayelsa State governorship race, scheduled for November 16, 2019.
The reality show star made this known in a statement on his Instagram page and released his campaign slogan and poster.
In the statement, the former BBNaija housemate said the time of talking about a better Nigeria is gone and now is the time for action.
“The reality of life is that power is never given, but always taken.
“The time of talking about a better Nigeria is gone, now is the time for action.
“Let us be the change we want to see.
“It is with this realization that I announce my candidacy for the 2019 Gubernatorial race in Bayelsa state.
“Let there be light,” Angel said.
The Bayelsa-born aspirant made his way into the ‘Double Wahala’ edition of the reality TV show, but got evicted at the early stage.
WuzupNaija reports that the current Deputy Governor, Sen. Douye Diri, joined the Bayelsa State governorship race on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
