"Why I voted Jonathan out," Nollywood actress reveals
Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe Gentry has revealed her reasons for 'voting' out the incumbent president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan at the presidential election.
Speaking at a social media forum, the actress revealed that one of the reasons she joined other citizens to vote the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, was to show incompetent leaders that the public have the sole power to choose and determine who leads.
In her words, "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" she dropped.
Aigbe-Gentry was one of the many Nigerian celebrities that took to the polling booths to exercise their civic responsibilities in casting their vote at the Nigerian presidential election that held on Saturday, March 28, 2015.
