Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, has endorsed Jackie B, a Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, confirming that she is the daughter of a former senator, Grace Bent.
On Wednesday, he revealed this on his verified Twitter page, referring to the ex-Senator as his dearest sister and friend.
He wrote, “I fully endorse Jackie B who is the daughter of my dearest sister and friend Senator Grace Bent! Please vote for her!”
Reactions trailed his support for the housemate, as Nigerians on social media replied to his tweet to express their thoughts.

While some people were surprised by Fani Kayode’s involvement in BBNaija, others declared they would not vote for her because of her political views.
Prior to the endorsement, there were claims on social media from Nigerians that Jackie B was the daughter of a former senator.
The support of Fani-Kayode, on the other hand, backed up the assertions.
Grace Bent, Jackie B’s mother, was elected to the Nigerian Senate in April 2007 to represent Adamawa South seat in Adamawa State.
At the same time that Fani-Kayode was serving as Nigeria’s Aviation Minister, Bent was elected to the Senate on the People’s Democratic Party platform.
Bent, however, moved to the All Progressives Congress after more than two decades with the PDP, bringing hundreds of supporters with him.
