Regina Daniels, the Nollywood actress, has explained why she chose not to pursue a political career, despite her husband’s plea.


Daniels is married to Ned Nwoko, the senator representing Delta north in the national assembly.

In a recent interview with BBC, the actress said her husband suggested that she run for a political position, but she declined.

She said she is willing to do what she can to assist and serve others, but “venturing into politics is not for me”.


She also described politics as “tough,” adding that she will only consider it if she finds inspiration.

“My husband tell me say you too very soon you go contest, I say no, politics no be for me like dat,” she said in Pidgin.

“I sabi help pipo well well, I sabi listen to pipo, di ones wey I fit do, I go do, di ones wey I no fit do I go leave am.


“Politics tough, no be for me for now except I see sometin wey go ginger me, but for now politics no be for me.”

In July, Daniels was appointed as the social secretary of the 10th senators’ wives association of Nigeria (SWAN).

The actress has been featured in several Nollywood productions, including ‘Plantain Girl’, ‘The Jericho’, and ‘Naked Sacrifice’, among others.

She has also received awards and accolades for her talent.
