Actress Funke Akindele has been chosen as the Peoples Democratic Party deputy governorship candidate of Lagos State.
Akindele confirmed this in a video she shared on her Instagram handle Tuesday.
In the video, Akindele shares her reasons for opting to become a running mate to Lagos State PDP governorship candidate – Olajide Adeniran popularly called Jandor.
“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,” she said.
“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 potentials.”
Meanwhile, when she signed off in the video, the Ikorodu-born Lagosian did not add her husband’s name, Bello.
This comes two weeks after her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, announced they had gone their separate ways, saying things had not been going well between him and the actress in the last two years.
