Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has declared that she is now fully into politics, adding that she is no longer acting.
The movie’s star disclosed this in a recent interview with BBC Pidgin.
When asked if she had completely retired from acting or planned to return after her run in politics, she responded saying:
“I’ve done like two films in 10 years, so you can’t tell me I’m still in the industry. I would always appreciate that it was the industry that my path started from, that my shine started from, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life for a while now. So even after the election, it is not something I plan on bringing back.”
Also, in the interview, Tonto commended her colleagues who are into politics, she said, “I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. These two people… I can hold to something and say I believe that these people have a vision for the people.”
The African Democratic Congress deputy governorship candidate for Rivers State stated that she has faith that her party will win the 2023 governorship election.
She likened her chance of winning to the outcome of the duel between biblical David and Goliath, saying “anything can happen.”
