NCDC Throws Funke Akindele Under the Bus says Actress not Brand Ambassador



The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control,  (NCDC) said Nollywood actress Funke Akindele also known as Jenifa, was not its brand ambassador, despite appearing in TV adverts for the NCDC and Dettol, calling on Nigerians to observe social distancing and hygiene as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

“As an agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria, NCDC has not engaged brand ambassadors as part of our response to COVID-19. We continue to emphasise that all Nigerians maintain social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

“The NCDC partnered with Dettol on a public service message to educate our communities about preventive measures against COVID-19. Funke is not a brand ambassador of the NCDC.

“As a responsible organization and brand, Dettol does not condone any breach of the guidelines on COVID-19, Dettol also said.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command arrested the actress for hosting a house party during the lockdown order of the federal government.
