The Nigeria Commission Of Christina Pilgrim Commission has released a statement, rubbishing a claim by Tonto Dikeh that, she was appointed as the commission’s Ambassador for peacebuilding.
On Friday, the actress took to her Instagram page to announce her appointment at the commission, sharing some photos taken with some members and the Secretary of the commission at his office.
However, after Tonto’s announcement, some Christians and Christian bodies bashed the commission for choosing Tonto for the position, which seems to have lead the commission to withdraw the appointment.
In a statement released via the Instagram page of the Secretary of the commission, Mr. Yakubu Pam, it claimed that Tonto only paid a courtesy visit to his office to express interest in partnering with the commission in the area of peacebuilding.
The statement went on to state that, Tonto’s claim of being appointed Ambassador for peace is coming as a shock and misinterpretation of what transpired on her visit.
“This claim by her is spurious, unfounded and should be discarded and seen by all Nigerians as a figment of her imagination”, they wrote.
