Governor Diri had formally received the Bayelsa-born proud graduate in company of her father on Monday.
The governor announced the award of automatic scholarship for Eradiri’s master and doctorate degrees in any university in Nigeria or abroad. He also offered her automatic employment to lecture at the law faculty of the state-owned NDU and also declared her as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child with a view to making her a role model for young girls in the state and the entire Ijaw nation to emulate.
“I was very conscious of my dressing, which enabled me to get the best dressed female student in the Faculty of Law, in the year l was graduating. I made sure I didn’t wear skimpy things that would expose sensitive parts of my body,” Eradiri reiterated.
