Amb. Chris stressed that his endorsement of Attention Magazine was done innocently and in view of his extensive relationship with the publisher. In his post he maintained that he is committed to his support for Actress Tonto Dikeh and her charity projects but that he would continue to keep a cordial relationship with everyone, because he isn't sure what tomorrow will bring.

However, the publisher of Attention Magazine,  Mr Nwankwo during a press briefing yesterday told newsmen that the endorsement of Attention Magazine by Amb.
