Actress Mercy Johnson Trends After Making Tinubu’s Campaign Team

Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has been trending on social media since she made the Tinubu/Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team, which was released on Saturday.

The ruling All Progressives Congress on Independence Day announced the composition of the women’s campaign train with First Lady, Aisha Buhari; Senator Oluremi Tinubu and Hajiya Nana, wife of vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima, leading the pack.

In the 70-page campaign document, no fewer than 33 Nollywood and Kannywood actors were listed under the Creative and Entertainment Category.

They included veteran thespian, Joke Silva who chairs the category, Fausat Balogun, Remi Oshodi, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, Rose Odika, Sola Kosoko, Lanre Hassan (Iya Awero) Hajiya Nas, Lizzy Jay (Omo Ibadan), Princess Kalihat Bello among others.

Meanwhile, Mercy Johnson’s involvement has attracted mixed reactions on Twitter. Below are some of such tweets:

@tossin_O wrote: “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.”

@DrFellele: “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.”

@Nkemchor: “Mercy Johnson can support Tinubu. Her influence doesn’t go past Nollywood. We are awake and we will not ignore our current realities as Nigerians to support Amoda Ogunlere because celebrities are saying he’s the best thing after jollof rice.
Selling Amoda is an impossible task!”

@ChiamaKi79922002: “I told you guys to forget mercy Johnson, she has made her choice and that’s good , we move with or without celebrities, a new Nigeria we must see come 2023.”

@novieverest: “Mercy Johnson is just supporting her husband’s career. It is normal. To me, she’s irrelevant. If you support Tinubu because of Mercy Johnson, when you start the next level of suffering, you won’t even get access to Mercy Johnson. She will have access to Tinubu though.”

@AjoseGaniat: “After noticing the likes of Mercy Johnson, Joke Silva and other Top Notable Nollywoods Actresses whose name made it to the APC Presidential Women Campaign list. The atmosphere has not been conducive. Wailing and ranting upandan. @officialABAT well done sir”

@MercyEgbai: “Mercy Johnson is supporting her husband and his party out of self-interest. It’s not out of place to drag her and cancel her out of our own self-interest. She wants her hubby in corridors of power for continued loot, and we the resilient Obi-dients want a better Nigeria.”
