‘I put aside emotions to work for good of Nigerians,’ Tonto Dikeh opens up on APC switch



Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has explained why she dumped the African Democratic Congress (ADC) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).

In a post on her Instagram page on Tuesday, the mother of one said she put emotions aside and resolved to work for the greater good of the Nigerian children, youths, women, and the country at large.

The actress revealed that she was confident that the country would witness the desired changes under President Bola Tinubu’s watch.

Dikeh was the ADC deputy governorship candidate in the last general election in Rivers State.

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

‘‘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 am headstrong 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.”
