Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has confirmed that she is the running mate to Olajide Adediran, the Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, popularly known as Jandor.
The actress made this known in a video she shared on social media which had her revealed reasons for accepting to contest for the post.
She said, “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.”
Meanwhile, when she said her name at the end of the video, the Ikorodu-born indigene of Lagos didn’t include her husband’s name, Bello.
