January 26, 2016 – Mercy Johnson’s Husband Prince Odianosen Okojie: I’m A Committed PDP Member, I’m Ready To Serve Edo People As Deputy Governor

Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson’s ‘Oga On Top, Odianosen Okojie has finally confirmed to fans that he is willing to join full time politics in his state of birth.

While confirming the report that first broke on yesterday, the actor said Edo youths want him to run as the next deputy governor.

Here is his full statement:

“My attention has been drawn to various campaigns on-going online about the upcoming election in Edo State later this year.

The campaign mainly by young people (youths) and students from Edo State and my local government, is that I should vie for the position of Deputy Governor in the state. This is based on the premise that since the party zoned deputy governorship slot to Edo Central where I am originally from, I should represent various interests in the area.

This is a gesture I appreciate; it is a good thing for people to recognise your good work and want you to serve especially when one has been supportive without being in government.

I want to make it clear that the position of deputy governorship is not a position one campaigns for, the party leaders alongside members chose who flies the party’s ticket alongside the governorship candidate. However, I am available to serve in whatever capacity the party wants me to serve. I am a loyal party member.

Most importantly, the people of Edo State deserve much more than what they are getting from the present government.

Good governance is not what is seen on the pages of newspapers, good governance reflects in the lives of the governed. People of Edo State can testify themselves if they have gotten the best from the present government. The people know they got the wrong end of the stick. Good governance is not PR, it is value-adding.

In whatever way things swing in Edo State, I am an interested stakeholder in the happenings in my state and a visionary individual who believes good leadership coupled with youthfulness can turn the whole of Nigeria and Edo State around without unnecessary noise.

I will continue to engage relevant stakeholders in Edo State regarding this matter.

I once again appreciate the various youth associations, students union, all the higher institutions in Edo State and women who want me to show interest in the upcoming election.

I will continue to help my people with or without political power as I have always done without being in government. I believe in the popular saying that, ‘ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country’.”
