Prince Odi Okojie, the husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson returned to his hometown in Uromi, Edo state yesterday February 8.





Prince Odi Okojie who says he is being persuaded by his people to fight for PDP’s deputy governor’s slot in the coming election in the state was received like a king, the people trooped out to greet him as he rode around the town.




His wife however wasn’t with him in his motorcade.

Prince Odi Okojie’s warm reception is an indication that he will be vying for a political office in the next gubernatorial election.

On January 25, 2016 it was reported that Mercy Johnson’s husband would be vying for the position of deputy governor of Edo state under the platform of the People Democratic Party.

Later in the day he released a statement clarifying his political ambitions.


“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 recognize 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," he said in the statement
