Posted On Aug 20, 2017
The Senior Special Assistant to Kogi State Governor on Entertainments, Arts and Culture, Mercy Johnson Okojie has been described as a rare gem to the people of the state.
The Obadofin of Owe Land and the paramount ruler of the Okun people, HRH Oba Michael Yusuf made the remark when he received the Veteran Actress and her team in Kabba.
The team was in the palace of the Oba to seek his blessings to continue the talent hunt for actors and actresses across the state, a project powered by the actress.
The monarch eulogised the human development project that the Mercy Johnson-led team has embarked on, describing it as a work of prosperity.
“You are doing a work of prosperity by taking the youths out of the streets. This is a chance to right the wrongs. You will never regret coming to Kabba.
“I know you are going to discover talents, and I assure you that you are in safe hands. Your people can also come here to shoot films because we have so many hills here, like Obangogo. We do not play with women, and we have regards for you.
While speaking, the actress thanked the monarch for his blessings, promising not to let the state down.
She also urged the people to cooperate with the Governor of the state, Alh Yahaya Bello in delivering the dividends of democracy.
In the team were top Nollywood actors, Francis Duru, John Okafor and ace comedian, Klint D Drunk.
The “GYBTalentHunt” began on Thursday 17th August, 2017 and has been held across the major districts of the state.
