Nollywood actress, Peju Johnson has weighed in on the arguments between celebrities over choice of presidential candidate.

She said:

“The fights are not necessary. Everyone has the right to support any candidate of their choice. I am not in support of actors fighting. It is not something one should be proud of. It is very bad and shameful.”

When asked if she thought it was appropriate to get benefits from a politician while continuing to oppose them in elections, Johnson responded,

“We are all Nigerians. The fact that someone is my friend or ex-lover past does not mean I have to support the person’s candidate. It is not right. If the person wants something else from me, I can still do it. However, who I vote for is my choice and my right. We all want a better country.”

Asked what she would consider before getting married, she said,

“I will consider love when marrying, but the man should have money (laughs). If I marry a man for money, I could leave him for someone I love. If I marry for money, the marriage won’t last.

“Being the breadwinner of the home is tiring. My partner and I should be able to support each other. If it is one-sided, it is not nice. I don’t want the man to be the sole provider. But, if I am also the only one providing everything, I would get tired one day.”
