Prince Odi Okojie, the husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has defended his wife following the outrage online, over her support for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News earlier reported that Mercy on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, attended the APC women’s rally for the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu.
The talented actress noted that she is confident in APC’s plan for women which is in line with 35% affirmative action for women.
According to Mercy Johnson, she was opportuned to hear the goodwill messages and she has renewed hope and confidence in the party’s good intentions.
The post generated mixed reactions from Nigerians as some urged her to support her husband and not sell APC to Nigerians while others defended her saying the actress cannot support another party when her husband is in APC.
At the time of the report, a quick check on Mercy’s Instagram page is literally a ‘mess’ with comments and she is also toping trends on the microblogging platform, Twitter.
You Have Always Stood Where I Stand
Amidst the backlashes, her husband, Prince Odi, took to the comment section of the post to appreciate Mercy’s support.
He noted that his wife does not have any contrary view about his stance on APC and they would work hard for Nigeria.
He wrote: “@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.”
