Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has strongly affirmed to the people of Rivers State in Nigeria that,t she is ready and capable of leading them to the ‘promise land.’
The actress provides a detailed account of her political career and discusses her goals as the potential deputy governor of the state a few days after being named the ADC candidate’s running partner.
The beautiful actress claimed to have demonstrable leadership experience and insisted that she was deserving of the job.
Speaking on her controversial title, King, Tonto said, “I have failed in my life and I’m not denying that. Everyone has seen that. But am I going to fail with leadership. Have I failed in leadership?
“Start from motherhood, have I ever failed in motherhood, talk about my foundation. I think it was one of the foundations that stood up for this country, in the time of the pandemic, with no assistance whatsoever. I did even more than the government.”
Tonto added: “I know and that is something I have never been able to explain to a lot of people but I think now I have to because I have to take it out for my campaign name and initiative because I don’t want the traditional rulers to think me ahead of them. My ‘King’ comes as a result of my name, as a name gotten from my son. It is not a title in any way or form.“
Speaking on criticisms, she said, “I am prepared for anything, truthfully. I have had three years to work on this, it’s not something that I just came out or emerged with. We’ve had a lot of time to work on this and for this. Criticism, I am ready, non-criticism I am ready. So, it doesn’t matter where the questions are coming from.“
