Team for Big Brother Naija season 6 housemate, Pere, has reacted to a twist between Pere and Angel to battle as finalists for the show.
The team released an official statement on Pere’s Instagram page revealing that they have been thrown off-balance by the twist.
This is coming after Pere and Angel who had faced fake eviction during the live show were pitted against each other for them to continue as finalists on the show.
The two housemates were isolated in a ‘white room’ in the BBNaija house and had to battle their way back into the show through ‘trucks and screwdrivers’, according to Biggie.
However, the voting poll shows that Pere had 25.31% of votes while Angel had 14.63%.
This has provoked reactions from Nollywood actor, Freddie Leonard, as well as fans of the 36-year-old contestant.
It has been rumoured that Pere’s fans have moved to stage a protest concerning the ‘unfair’ twist meted out to their fave.
Addressing the recent happening, the statement read, ” Bigbrother has a tradition of fair conduct spanning Its history. As a platform that has helped so many people over the years, their integrity is indispensable, and the credibility of their process has barely ever been in question.
“This is why they’ve led by example over the years which in turn makes the show the biggest platform in Africa.
“The events of yesterday created so much uproar among our fans, neutrals, and even our competitors.
“The ripple effect of this event has thrown our voting team off-balance in terms of our preparedness for the final week of voting.
“Even though we feel unfairly at a disadvantage, we still believe it’s a twist and a game that will play out and eventually make our votes count.
“We must trust the process and integrity of the platform. The platform wouldn’t allow the efforts of millions of people that went all out to vote to go in vain.
“One of our major voting team coordinators had a life-threatening accident last week while trying to solicit and coordinate our votes, not to talk of different incidents involving our team members in different states putting them in harm’s way while voting tirelessly.
“They invested resources, time, sweat, and sleepless nights just to get Pere into the final week.
“It’s being rumoured that some of our supporters are planning on taking certain actions to express their anger and frustration.
“We appreciate every one of you, for your unwavering solidarity, but we implore everyone to stay calm and exercise patience.
“Let’s allow the twist to play out and eventually take Pere to the finals. Make no mistake, our votes will count. Thanks for your support.”
