The controversy regarding Mercy Johnson’s support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) party has finally been addressed by her husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie.
The veteran screen diva had earlier expressed her confidence in the APC’s agenda for women, which is in line with 35% affirmative action for women.
Mercy Johnson claims that she was fortunate to hear the messages of friendliness and that they have given her newfound faith in the party’s sincere motives.
She posted; “Earlier today, I joined his Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu @jidesanwoolu and the incredible women leaders that make up the APC women’s presidential campaign team at the APC women’s Southwest rally.
As a woman, wife to an APC candidate @princeodiokojie and mother, I am confident in the APC plan for women which is in line with the 35% affirmative action for women.”
Nigerians’ reactions to the tweet came in varied forms; some praised her for standing by her husband, while others criticized her for backing the APC.
The actress cannot endorse another party while her spouse is a member of the APC, some internet users said in her defence. This made her husband react as he acknowledged her support in return.
In his words:
“@mercyjohnsonokojie my dear wife and best friend, thanks a lot for your support, you have always stood where I stand, you‘re an amazing woman. We will work hard for Nigeria, I love you and God bless you.”
