There are video proofs, but I would Rather respect the commission’s decision and take the Fall
Nigerian movie star, Tonto Dikeh has reacted to denial of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) on her appointment as the Peace Ambassador of the commission maintaining that had evidence to back her claims.
The Nollywood controversial actress also inferred that some people were behind the NCPC’s ‘sudden’ turn around.
The NCPC had in a statement denied appointing the popular Nollywood star actress as its peace ambassador.
Part of the statement issued on Friday by Celestine Toruka, Head Media and Public Relations of commission reads; “The fact remains that the Executive Secretary of NCPC never appointed King Tonto Dikeh an Ambassador of Peace for NCPC and this was not part of her visit, therefore this claim by her is spurious, unfounded, and should be discarded and seen by all Nigerians as a figment of her imagination.
“Nevertheless, we appreciate her desire to partner with us in our peace-building initiatives and in the area of pilgrimage sponsorship to the Holy Land’’.
But in her reaction to the commission’s rebuttal of her supposed appointment, the actress maintained that she had video proofs to back her claims.
‘‘There are video proofs, but I would Rather respect the commission’s decision and take the Fall. Thanks to every Christian body that fought against this growth,’’ she said
Dikeh, who was appointed as the director of socials and empowerment by the pro-government Committee of Youth on Mobilization and Sensitization (CYMS), in 2020, has had her own share of bad press in recent times.
