Reports say as part of activities to kick off the promotion of girl child education in the country, the actress paid a courtesy call to St Joseph Convent Secondary School which incidentally is the same school attended by the First Lady of Sierra Leone Fatima Jabbe Maada Bio.

Recall that Mercy Johnson and her husband, Prince Odi Okojie were invited as special guests during the Sierra Leone Presidential Inauguration ceremony staged last month on the invitation of the newly elected president.
