Nigerians have taken a swipe at Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, for throwing her weight behind the ruling All Progressives Party (APC).
The actress had shared pictures of herself with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and Hajia Nana Shettima at the APC South West Women Presidential Campaign Rally held in Lagos, on Wednesday, on her Instagram page.
She wrote: “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.”
However, some Nigerians have taken to the comment section of the post to express their displeasure over the actress’ support for APC.

You think you will collect money and insulate your family. God will measure each and everyone of your punishment and the money you collected will not save you. Long throat gang.”

hetypat Mercy also said: Even with the money your husband is spending in Uromi, he will not win. We from Uromi hate APC to the marrow of our bone. Tell your husband Odi to just rest. I know he’s already scared and asking people “what if I loose with all this money I am spending”. Meaning he’s very scared. The day he joined APC was the end of it all, mark this.”
