Christian Pilgrim commission denounces Tonto Dikeh..says, “she is not our ambassador”

Tonto Dikeh

The Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) has said it did not at any occasion appoint Tonto Dikeh as its peace ambassador describing the claim by the popular actress as spurious

In a one-page statement signed by Celestine Toruka, Head Media and Public Relations NCPC, the commission said Dikeh did pay 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.

During the visit, 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.”

The commission however noted that since the visit it has been inundated with “claims from King Tonto Dikeh herself that she has been officially appointed as Ambassador of peace by this great Commission.”

The Commission however frowned at the claim which has since gone viral saying it is a clear misrepresentation of what transpired.

The statement reads further, “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.”
