Speaking in an interview with BBC News Pidgin, Tonto reveals she won’t return to acting even if her party fails to win the governorship elections in Rivers State.

“I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life.

“So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power,” Tonto said.

She also commended her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Banky W for summoning the courage to participate in politics.

“It is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because criticisms and so many things are involved.”

“I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. With them, I can hold onto something and say I believe that they have a vision for the people,” she said.
