Tonto Dikeh, a well-known Nigerian actress and candidate for deputy governor on the ADC ticket, has spoken out about her relationship with Nyesom Wike, the governor of River State.
Tonto said that Wike is the only resident in Rivers State who has a close relationship with her father while speaking on TVC’s current affairs programme, “Your View.”
Tonto Dikeh responded that the governor has never supported her political ambition and that it doesn’t bother her that he hasn’t.
The single mother stated that since Wike is unaware of her potential, she doesn’t take Wike’s actions personally.
“He’s our number citizen, and I do believe he has a personal relationship with my father and my family, some people might say he’s my uncle but I’ll just say he’s the number citizen in Rivers state.”
“He has never been supportive to me in any form or way, but that is not a problem because It Is The People Who Know You That Will Ignore That You Can Shine. Until other people support you and for you to grow. I don’t take it personally, he doesn’t just know what I’m capable of doing.”
