Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe was one of the celebs who despite their busy schedule, came out to vote at the Nigerian presidential election that held on Saturday, March 28, 2015.
She opened up on her reasons for not voting President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, at the 2015 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, General 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 said.
