The actor announced the good news through his Instagram page, where he shared a photo of himself holding what appeared to be his appointment letter.
The entrepreneur is famous among Nigerian movie lovers for playing criminal, villain and hit man roles in Nollywood films.
Zubby, by this appointment, joins the list of Nollywood stars who over the past couple of years, have been honoured with government positions. The last time a Nollywood star was made special adviser to a governor was back in 2018 when Yul Edochie was made Special Adviser to the Anambra State Governor.
Other Nollywood stars that once held political offices include Richard Mofe-Damijo, Kate Henshaw, Desmond Elliot, Femi Adebayo and Ini Edo.
Event watchers in the film industry are eagerly waiting for Zuby Michael’s impact on the Nigerian film industry and the youth by this new office.
