Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has revealed that she has what it takes to help the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) win in the next governorship election in Lagos State.
The movie star who is the running mate for the governorship candidate, Olajide Adediran, popularly called Jandor, made this known during a chat with Channels TV.
“I have the numbers. I have fans and followers. I’m true to myself. I have over 20 million on social media. The grassroots are a lot of people, they feel, outside of Ikorodu. What I’m coming for is for the better life of Lagosians. I am tired of talking, I want to get into power to proffer solutions to the problems we are going through,” she said.
It would be recalled that Akindele was recently announced as the running mate of the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos state.
Akindele said she decided to accept the mandate to help women and improve the wellbeing of youths and the girl child.
“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 added.
