Nollywood actress and Rivers State deputy governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the 2023 election, Tonto Dikeh says her chances of becoming the governor of the state are high and slim because politics is dirty.
Dikeh, who made this known in a statement said she would not stop contesting until her ambition is realized.
According to her, Sim Fubara did not win the election free and fair, adding that she did not expect the contest to be free.
Part of her statement reads,
“One of the things I learnt (in contesting the election) is resilience and never giving up. I know after four years, they will forget about me and that, ‘she is not going to come back.’ But I am going to come back. Every four years, I am going to come back. I will come back and I will be in their faces. I will be coming back to the contest.
“My chances (of becoming governor) are high and slim because politics is dirty. It’s not going to be free and fair. (Nyesom) Wike’s candidate didn’t win free and fair. So I don’t expect politics to be free and fair, but I expect that, as someone said, having a lion’s heart requires taking the lion’s share.
“I won’t care what they think about my position, I will keep having the lion’s share, whether it is my personal life or politics, I am here to stay and they have no choice but to accept it.
