CELEBRITY GOSSIP DO YOU KNOW? HAVE YOU HEARD HEAT OF THE MOMENT LATEST GIST NOLLYWOOD GIST TONTO DIKEH IS NOT OUR AMBASSADOR – CHRISTIANS PILGRIMS COMMISSION REACTS By Admin Posted on February 27, 2021 3 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin The Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC) has reacted to news making the rounds that popular Nollywood actress, Tontoh Dikeh is now an ambassador of the commission. The actress had taken to her social media handle to announce that she had become an ambassador of the commission after a courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary, a Reverend Yakubu Pam in Abuja on Thursday. But in a press release on Friday, the NCPC stated that “that the Executive Secretary of NCPC never appointed King Tonto Dikeh an Ambassador of Peace for NCPC.” Below is a full text of the press release by the NCPC PRESS STATEMENT The Nigeria Christian Pilgrim 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. 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 virile 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 .
