    Lagos 2023: Why I Accepted To Run As Deputy Gov -Funke Akindele

    Published By:

    Nollywood actress and producer, Akindele-Bello Olufunke Ayotunde popularly known as Funke Akindele, has revealed her reason for accepting to run for deputy governor of Lagos State, for the People’s Democratic Party PDP.

    Recall that Funke emerged as the Deputy Governorship candidate, beating five other nominees for the position.

    In a video posted on her verified Instagram page on Tuesday, the actress said, she saw an opportunity to help liberate and improve the well-being of our people.

    She said, “As a Lagosian born out of Ikorodu, when asked to join Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (JANDOR) as his running mate for next year’s gubernatorial elections– the opportunity to help liberate and improve the welfare of our people could not be ignored.

    According to her, “I found JANDOR to be young, brave, knowledgeable and compassionate. Most importantly, his commitment to making the wealth of Lagos truly reflect in the living standards of all her residents is genuine & remarkable.

    “My decision is not only to accept this huge responsibility but to work tirelessly and complement JANDOR’s burning desire to see our dear state of Lagos live up to its full potential, where the people are made the top priority as immediate and direct beneficiaries.

    “I use this opportunity to appeal to the well-meaning residents of Lagos, especially the youth: There is strength in numbers, and we must use this to our advantage. It is time to take our rightful people in matters that concern our lives and our future.”

    “This is the time to change our story and our lives. I am greatly aware of the cost of this assignment and prepared to make the personal sacrifice of putting my career on hold, to serve. My resolve is that no sacrifice is too much for the good of our people and state,” she added.
