Tonto Dikeh, the Nollywood star, has revealed why she joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).


On Monday, the Nollywood star was officially unveiled as a new member of the ruling party at the APC national secretariat in Abuja.

Speaking on her decision to join the ruling party via Instagram on Tuesday, the actress said she believes in the “prosperity of Nigeria under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.

Dikeh said she has “decided to put emotions aside and continue to work for the greater good of Nigeria”.


The film star, who was the deputy governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the 2023 gubernatorial election in Rivers, said she has been “presented with facts, goals and vision of the current renewed hope agenda”.

“Facts accompanied with evidence usually bring arguments to an end, which propel drastic decisions and changes for the common good,” she wrote.

“Having been presented with these facts, goals and vision of the current renewed hope agenda, I have decided to put emotions aside and continue to work for the greater good of the Nigerian youth, women and the country at large as I have always done through the Committee of Youth on Mobilization and Sensitization (CYMS) platform in partnership with the Federal Government.


“I have learnt over the years that impactful leadership comes from visionary leaders offering selfless service to humanity, i am all about the progress of my country, Nigeria, and the youths of this great nation at large.

“This is not a win for me alone but a win for our dreams, hope and struggles to ensure we make our unborn generation proud with good legacies.

“I am headstrong on for you Nigerians, and in due time, you will surely feel the positive impacts of my decision as it will be evident through us all.

“As a patriotic Nigerian, a progressive youth and an advocate of girl-child, i want to reiterate that i believe in the prosperity of Nigeria under the Renewed Hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR”.


In 2020, Dikeh opened up about her plans to go into politics.
