Odianosen Okojie, husband of famous Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson, has won the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for the 2023 elections in Esan North East/ South East federal constituency of Edo State.

Mr Okojie won the primaries held in Ubiaja, Esan South East LGA., Edo State on Saturday.

The 48-year-old politician picked the declaration form expression of Interest and Nomination Form to run for the office of Federal House of Representatives, Esan North East/Esan South East Federal Constituency, in April 2022.

He is from the lineage of Ogbidi Okojie, Onojie (king) of Uromi, who was a ruler of the Esan people and is renowned for his opposition to British rule.

Mr Okojie appreciated God for the win and his wife’s love and support in an Instagram post on Saturday.

He also shared his manifesto on his official Instagram account.
