Actress Funke Akindele has said her emergence as the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State was a life changing moment for her.
The 44-year-old said this on Twitter on Monday while ushering her followers into the new month.
Funke Akindele also expressed gratitude to everyone who supported her.
July was a revealing month for me because of my life changing announcement. This journey is new for me and I’m so grateful to have had amazing support every step of the way.
“I look forward to doing more in August and I hope that this new month yields good things for us all,” she wrote.
Funke in an Instagram post on July 12 announced she has been chosen as the running mate of Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State.
Explaining why she will emerge as the deputy governor, Funke in a recent interview with Channels TV, stated that she and Jandor have the numbers required to win, adding that she has over 20 million followers on social media.
Funke Akindele’s announcement as Jandor’s running mate was met with mixed reactions from Nigerians. While some supported the actress, others called the party ‘unserious’ over the decision to pick the Jenifa’s Dairy star as the party’s candidate for the deputy governorship position.
