Nigerians tackle Mercy Johnson over her support for APC
Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has been trending on social media since she made a post throwing her weight behind APC’s Lagos governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Ms Johnson posted photos of her activity with the ruling party; All Progressives Congress on her verified Instagram page on Wednesday evening and captioned it: “Earlier today, I joined His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu @jidesanwoolu 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 the 35% affirmative action for women.
From the goodwill messages and conversations with the women leaders, I was opportuned to hear from the horse’s 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. #RenewedHope.#VoteAPC. #Odiwife.”
This didn’t obviously go down well with some Nigerians who stormed her comment section to express their disappointments.
