A few hours later, a statement from the Executive secretary of the commission denied making the mum of one an ambassador but confirmed that she offered to partner with them in their peace-building initiative.

Taking to her official Instagram page, Tonto Dikeh stated that she would never tell a lie against a commission of the federation but will not fight their claims.

She further revealed that she has video proof of the meeting and everything that transpired but would rather respect the commission's decision and take the fall for the incident.
"There are video proofs, but I would Rather respect the commission’s decision And take the Fall. Thanks to every Christian body that fought against this growth."
The NCPC's and Tonto Dikeh's statements generated reactions as most Nigerians believe the commission changed its mind because of complaints about the former actress.
"Because people are complaining that she is not worthy right? some said she didn't dress properly? God is still God and he will judge."
"I don't believe you guys one bit. I know this is your afterthought playing out."
"Even if it’s true, what you wrote is so condescending like you got a personal problem with her. You bowed to peer pressure and now you’re throwing her under the bus. So much for Christians uplifting Christians."
"Her imagination? How can you be this wicked?"
"They are trying to save face after been bashed. Take the fall in good faith."
"My love and respect for @tontolet has increased."
