Mercy Johnson speaks on divorce rumours and plans joining politics
Star actress Mercy Johnson has debunked the rumour a few days after they began, by posting a picture of her and her hubby, we do feel better hearing her state this in clear terms.
Reports made the rounds that star actress Mercy Johnson was experiencing some turbulence in her marriage simply because she deleted all her pictures, including the ones that captured her husband, from her Instagram page.
Mercy said, “I did not feel bad when I read the news that my marriage was hitting the rocks because it was not true. I am very comfortable in my own space and I am not out to please anybody. I am always true to myself and I continue to be a happy person.
“There was absolutely no problem between my husband and me, I only deleted the old pictures on my Instagram page. They were old so I deleted them to post new ones. I am not letting my husband go; even when he is angry, I would beg him. You see these beautiful rings that he has given to me, I am never returning them.”
In a interview with punch Saturday Beats, she jokingly stated with a wide smile that she would never return the beautiful wedding ring her husband gave her.
The Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture in Kogi State said,“It has not been easy combining my roles as an actress, representative of Kogi State, a mother and a wife but I describe myself as a home girl and everything has always been about a system of priority for me. So God comes first, my family and then work; God and my family have to be settled before we can talk about work because when I am not happy at home, I cannot function in whatever capacity I ought to function, so I have always followed my priorities. As I speak with you, if I get a call from my kids’ school and they inform me that something happened, I would leave everything I am doing and rush there,”
She revealed that her visit to the labour room was not over as she hopes to have another child. “I am going to have another baby very soon. I am obsessed with children and while growing up, I had always wanted to have four children, so we have to complete the equation.
Since both couple got married, they have been in the spotlight and have never failed to show anyone that the ultimate goal is to stay as one united family and raise beautiful kids.
Mercy Johnson-Okojie also has spoken on plans to join politics in Kogi State the sun newspaper reports.
She told Sun “No, I am not interested in politics, if my people beg me to join, I’ll equally beg them not to beg me. I just don’t want to do politics at all.
“I can equally effect change in my community without holding any political office. My husband is already a politician, but I’m not. I think it’s enough on my shoulders that I’m responsible for some actions in the state.
“I also have influence on people as a film person. Everything you do is under scrutiny; that public eye is enough for me. I wouldn’t want to top it with political responsibilities. I can represent my community in a good light, help people, touch lives, do the best I can, and remain a good woman, but not with a political tag.
“Well, I’m not scared. I’m just been careful.”
