Tonto Dikeh reacts as NCPC denies appointing her Christian ambassador of peace



Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has reacted to the statement by the Nigeria Christians Pilgrims Commission, (NCPC) which debunked her claims of officially being appointed as an ambassador of peace.

Recall that Tonto Dikeh had released a statement via Instagram page, saying she was appointed Peace Ambassador for the NCPC.

However the Commission in a press statement said her claims were false.

“The Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission NCPC wishes to state in categorical terms that King Tonto Dikeh paid an official courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Rev Yakubu Pam on 25th February, 2021 at the corporate headquarters of the Commission in Abuja”. The Statement reads.

“As the founder of Tonto Dikeh Foundation, she expressed her willingness and interest in partnering with the Commission in the area of peace building.

“She equally cashed in on the visit to commend the NCPC boss for his positive and relentless peace initiatives across the country.

“However, we are suddenly inundated with claims from King Tonto Dikeh herself that she has been officially appointed as Ambassador of peace by this great Commission. This claim has gone viral in the media.

“The Commission frowns at this claim which is a clear misrepresentation of what transpired.

“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.”

However, the veteran actress responded through her official Instagram page and insisted that her claims are true and that she never lied.
