Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic has come out to give reasons why Audrey Silva – a company she co-owns with her manager, Mildred Okwo – shot a campaign video for President Goodluck Jonathan.
In a letter to her fans, Dominic said the decision was taken following the assistance the President has given to the entertainment sector, stating that he is the only Nigerian president in history to accord such attention to the arts.
Parts of the letter read: “I want to let everybody know that I will be supporting and voting for President Goodluck Jonathan. I am making this decision because he has affected my immediate constituency which is Nollywood more than any president in the history of Nigeria. He has built roads, Benin- Ore road, Ibadan- Lagos road which is near completion, federal universities in almost all the states of the federation, maintaining peace in the Niger-Delta, resuscitation of the railways and a couple of other things. And I have a strong conviction beyond reasonable doubt that Jonathan will lead us to a very good place.”
The pretty award-winning actress also posited that she did not demand money for the video from President Jonathan but did it out of her personal conviction. She said: “For those who wish to know we did not demand or get a dime for the video. It was purely done out of conviction. So come February 14; 2015, I will be on the queue to cast my vote for PDP candidate President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. I am not saying that he is perfect, but considering the times we are in, he has done very well.”
