Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson has been trending on social media ever since she posted a statement endorsing Babajide Sanwo-Olu for governor of Lagos on behalf of the APC.
Earlier today, I joined His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu @jidesanwoolu and the wonderful women leaders who make up the APC “Women Presidential Campaign Team” at the APC women Southwest Rally, Ms. Johnson said in a series of images she shared on her verified Instagram profile on Wednesday night.
I am confident in the APC plan for women because it is consistent with the 35% affirmative action for women and because I am a woman, a mother, and the wife of an APC candidate named @princeodiokojie.
I had the opportunity to hear from the source through the well-wisher messages and conversations with the women leaders, and as a result, I have renewed faith in the good intentions, excellent plans, and forthcoming actions for the women of Nigeria and the Nigerian people. RenewedHope. Odiwife: “Vote APC.”
Some Nigerians were definitely disappointed by this, as they flooded her comment area to voice their displeasure.
Truly jaw-dropping wrote: Bad decision. Yes, it’s admirable to stand behind your husband, but refrain from endorsing apc before Nigerians spread the idea that you should be fired. I genuinely care about you; don’t sully that.
Support your husband in peace, as Dreco 905 put it. Don’t misinform us about APC.
Aren’t you sick of the harm this APC has done to Nigerians, Immalove38 wrote? Or perhaps you have gathered your back hand to support it. You are alone, Madame.
Nigerian celebrities have self-serving objectives, according to Chidinma554. Ndi desire it. Indi egwu
