Okah-Donli said, the decision to the name the actress as NAPTIP ambassador is because of her passionate readiness to work with the agency in order to help the youth who are victims of human trafficking.

According to Okah- Donli, “Tonto is the first Nollywood actress to partner with us in fighting the scourge of human trafficking, and automatically, is named an Ambassador for NAPTIP. There are many areas we can work together using her popularity as an actress and role model to many young people. She has fans and followers, especially on her social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and of course she can talk about NAPTIP on such platforms. She is known for the free skills acquisition and an empowerment programme she offers, especially young women, through her foundation, and that is line with our objectives as well. Having a celebrity of international repute as Tonto Dikeh to partner with us, is a big boost to our enlightenment and awareness campaigns. Other Nollywood actresses and celebrities should know that this is the right part to tow towards building a better and proud nation for all.”
In Tonto’s response, she said, “As an Ambassador of NAPTIP; I intend to do a radical campaign against human trafficking across Nigeria, as far as I can go. I have always been inspired to do this because human trafficking is a huge national problem that should not be left for government alone. My passion has always been to speak against it in my little capacity, and I just found the right platform which is NAPTIP. I do believe that God raised celebrities to be agents of positive change in societies because they have fans and a lot of people who follow them.”
The actress pleaded with the government to work towards making Nigeria a better place as she noted that some victims are forced into trafficking in search for greener pastures. According to Tonto, “We want to see our education and economy get better; we want to see our youths finished school and get Jobs.”
