Nollywood in Politics: The highly anticipated Nigerian election 2015 has come to pass, and many are happy with the outcome. Popular Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has voiced out the reasons she voted for Change; a vote which collectively denied Goodluck Jonathan a second term as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; NollywoodSocial.Net is reporting.
Speaking recently at a social media forum, Mercy Aigbe reportedly revealed that one of the reasons she joined other citizens to vote the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, was to show the incompetent leader Goodluck Jonathan that the public have the sole power to choose and determine who leads the nation.
Here’s what she said, in quote:
“We voted Jonathan out not because Buhari is a miracle worker, not because the alternative was the Best!! But so that incompetent leaders will know, fear and understand the people’s ability to select, Elect and De-Select.”
“Why should we endure another four years with PGEJ simply because we fear the Unknown? If the Unknown comes in and performs at the same level or worse, we vote them out as well! Until our leaders start to lead correctly, we will continue to change them! Tears of joy for Nigeria, I am so proud of all of us! May god continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, Mercy Aigbe concludes.
On March 28, 2015, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry was one of the many Nigerian celebrities who took to the polling booths to exercise their civil responsibilities when they cast their votes at the concluded Nigerian presidential election held on Saturday-continued on Sunday; in which former Military General and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; Muhammadu Buhari emerged the winner.
