Nigerians have reacted to the inclusion of Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson , in Tinubu/Shettima Women Campaign Team.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Nollywood actresses like Joke Silva, Mercy Jognson, Shola Sobowale and others made it to the list .
33 Nollywood and Kannywood actors were listed under the Creative and Entertainment Category.
They are veteran thespian, Joke Silva who chairs the category, Fausat Balogun, Rahama Sadau, Remi Oshodi, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, Rose Odika, Sola Kosoko, Lanre Hassan (Iya Awero) Hajiya Nas, Lizzy Jay (Omo Ibadan), Princess Kalihat Bello among others.
From the reactions by Nigerians, it seems Mercy Johnson-Okojie’s name being on the list disappointed them the most .
The fact is that Mercy Johnson’s husband is a member of the APC and the actress herself worked under Governor Yahaya Bello as a SSA .

Read the reactions below :
When Gistlover was completing the Amoda Ogunlere series, he/she alleged that Mercy Johnson’s husband is one of Amoda’s drug pushers. That was his main job while in Italy.
A few people in some corners have also affirmed the story to be true.
So I’m not particularly surprised.

Mercy Johnson should abandon her husband’s interest to do what?
And what’s this thing about saying being broke is the reason why some people decided to go with a particular candidate?
This TL understood Otedola’s reason for declaring support for Tinubu but no one wants to understand Mercy Johnson’s?
E good to be billionaire.
It’s how you people rate yourselves for me! Mercy Johnson who’s husband has political affiliation and ambition under the APC should abandon her husband for Twitter people. No sense.
I don’t know about others, but you need to see the work rate Mercy Johnson, is doing in Edo state for APC……..she is moving from villages to villages campaigning….
Hard lessons will be learnt…

What’s my business if Mercy Johnson is supporting a candidate? People already rich?
APC & Tinubu know they lost the people hence they want to apply same strategy advertisement agencies use: Draft big stars for advert & hope product sells.
Go ask Globacom. It won’t work
“Nobody should drag Joke Silva, Mercy Johnson, Rahama Sadau, & other celebs in Tinubu’s Women Campaign Team” bla bla bla….
Why won’t they be dragged when they decided to dabble into politics to support the same APC that has kept Nigerian students off school for 8 months?

If Mercy Johnson didn’t think campaigning for Tinubu would help her husband’s political career in some way, do you think she would accept to do it? Show me one person not supporting Tinubu for selfish reasons, the country is bigger than your selfish reasons abeg

I have always emphasized on the need to allow people make their political choices freely. This is a democracy. If Mercy Johnson has decided to support her husband’s party, that is their choice. The end justifies the means. Whether they are being bankrolled or not is irrelevant.
