Controversial Before the 2023 elections, Tonto Dikeh, a Nigerian actress, stated that she was Mr. Tonte Ibraye’s VP candidate for governor of Rivers State, Nigeria, on the African Democratic Congress (ADC) platform.
On Friday, June 24, specifically Instagram, the movie star announced it in a post on her social networking account.
She added a banner and poster with pictures of herself and Mr. Ibraye to her post, announcing their shared desire to help the people of the Southern Nigerian State.
The Actress wrote,
“I thank Mr. Tonte Ibraye(@tonteibraye), the Governorship Candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Rivers State for nominating me as his running mate.
“We are looking forward to investing massively in social protection, creating a social value system for young people, increased women inclusion in our governance system, supporting small businesses and strengthening our traditional institutions to be active players in the drive to bring sustainable development to the good people of Rivers State.
“I am glad to be a proud member of the #RiversRescueMission2023 please get your PVC and join the movement. You are the Future and the future is now! #TonteTonto2023.”
Social media users across the country have reacted differently to the post as some congratulated her, others criticised the political party for picking her as running mate.
