Tonto Dikeh, Nigerian actress, says there are video proofs that she was appointed ambassador by the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC).
The 35-year-old movie star — who has been in the news for different reasons recently — ignited fresh controversy on Friday when she announced that the commission had named her as its peace ambassador.
Her claim had sparked widespread criticism on social media with many Nigerian users lambasting the commission for the said appointment.
Amid the dust, Yakubu Pam, executive secretary of the NCPC, had openly dismissed the movie star’s claim.
But in an Instagram post on Saturday, Dikeh expressed her disappointment at the commission’s action, adding that she would make no further comment on the appointment.
“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 wrote.
“Best believe that I will never lie on a human being talk more of a commission of a federation. I’ll only simply said this is life. We all know what can go wrong in one second. But we move.”
“Coming from a place of leadership and peace, I wouldn’t fight this. But I’ll walk away with my head head held high and grow above it. Thanks.”
