Nollywood leading actress, Rita Dominic has broken away from her normal routine of acting to romance politics in the heat of the around-the-corner presidential election. In a letter she wrote to her fans, Rita explained why she and her company, Audrey Silva, a company she co-owns with her manager, Midred Okwo, shot a video to support President Goodluck Jonathan re-election bid.
According to her, President Goodluck Jonathan has done more for Nollywood than any Nigerian President in history.
“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” she posits.
And at the same time putting to rest speculations that she might have been sponsored for the production of the video, Rita has this to say: “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” she declares.
