High-profile actress Funke Akindele has formally verified rumors that she is Dr. Olajide Adediran’s running mate for governor of Lagos State in the PDP.
The mother of two recently announced her courageous decision to enter politics while postponing her career in entertainment in a video posted on Tuesday, July 12.
The actor promised to work with the governor in 2023, if necessary, to ensure that women’s and young people’s interests are properly represented.
I SAW IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP LIBERATE AND IMPROVE THE WELLBEING OF OUR PEOPLE, PARTICULARLY THE DEPRIVED YOUTH, WOMEN, AND THE GIRL CHILD.
“MY DECISION IS NOT JUST TO ACCEPT THIS HUGE RESPONSIBILITY BUT TO ALSO WORK TIRELESSLY AND COMPLEMENT JANDOR’S BURNING DESIRE TO SEE OUR DEAR LAGOS LIVE UP TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL.”
HOWEVER, AT THE END VIDEO, WHILE REINTRODUCING HERSELF, FUNKE AKINDELE OMITTED ‘BELLO’ (HER ESTRANGED HUSBAND’S NAME).
