Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has debunked rumors that she was signed as the new Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) ambassador.
Toyin Abraham appeared in an advert for the organization to help sensitize people on the importance of washing hands as well as other coronavirus preventive measures.
The center, through a post on its official social media page on Thursday, introduced the advert which was done in Yoruba language and urged people to download and share the video.
It added that the sensitization project, featuring Abraham, had been carried out in partnership with other health agencies such as the United Nations (UN) and others.
Rumors that Toyin Abraham had replaced Funke Akindele as the brand ambassador of NCDC began making rounds online.
Toyin, reacting to the rumors said: “It has just been brought to my attention that blogs are reporting that I am now NCDC ambassador. Implying that I have been used to replace a colleague. That line of thought necessitate I put this out there.
“I am not an ambassador to NCDC. I do not like the narrative that I am trying to take advantage of a bad situation. I support the campaign against Covid-19, I appeared on a video campaign against the pandemic but please let’s not drag another person down. Thank you. Signed:Toyin Abraham,
