As we gradually approach the forthcoming general elections, Nollywood actors and actresses continue to pitch their tents with various political parties, latest of which is veteran actress Mercy Johnson.

Mercy Johnson recently declared her support for the All Progressive Congress when she posted a photo of her involvement with the APC Women presidential campaign.

“Earlier today, I joined His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu @jidesanwolu and the incredible women leaders that make up the APC ‘Women Presidential Campaign Team’ at the APC women 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 35% affirmative action for women.”

“From the goodwill messages and conversations with the women leaders, I was opportune to hear from the horses’ mouth and I have renewed hope and confidence in the good intentions, great plans, and actions to follow for the women of Nigeria and for the people of Nigeria. Renewed hope. Vote APC. Odiwife.”

News of her support for the APC caused quite a stir amongst the general public as many took to the comment section to voice their displeasure for the popular actress’ choice.

One user, ‘Muti’, commented “Renewed hope at roughly 300 per liter for fuel or over 30k for one bag of rice? You are not a serious human being. Tomorrow you celebrities will make a video crying about the hike in prices. Aunty if you don’t fear men, please fear God for the sake of Nigerians.”

Another user, ‘Brave’, reacted by saying “You all just care about money and no single regard for humanity. It’s a pity!”

Zubby reacted by saying, “Support ur husband for his position nut don’t try sugarcoating APC!! Even deep down you know the truth!!!”

Her husband, Prince Odi Okojie leaped to the defense of his wife in the comment section, cheering her on for standing with his party regardless of public opinion.
