Funke Akindele, a Nollywood actress and producer, has been named as one of the probable running mates for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate Alhaji Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor.
The actress’s name was one of the six candidates selected by the People’s Democratic Party in Lagos State (PDP).
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, a past gubernatorial candidate; Yeye Shobajo, a former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East; David Kolawole Vaughan a.k.a. DAKOVA, an additional governorship contender; and Engr. Teslim Balogun are also on the list of candidates.
The involvement of actress Funke in politics follows that of her colleague Tonto Dikeh, who was nominated as her party’s 2023 Rivers State Deputy Governorship candidate earlier last week.
