Weeks after Tinubu’s demeaning remark, actress turned politician, Funke Akindele has revealed why she has continued to ignore backlash from critics over her political ambition.
Funke who is the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos, Olajide Adediran aka Jandor disclosed this during the party’s ongoing grassroots engagement with residents in Eleko community, Ibeju-Lekki axis of the state.
Speaking on why she ignored those making negative comments about her, she asserted:
“WE WANT TO SECURE THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN AND IT STARTS NOW. THEY SAID SO MANY THINGS, WHEN I WANTED TO COME OUT, BUT I DID NOT ANSWER THEM BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THE STATE WILL BE BETTER IF WE GET INTO OFFICE.”
The 45-year-old said she joined the governorship race to save Lagos from “bad governance.”
“NOBODY IS HAPPY WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN LAGOS STATE AT THE MOMENT. IF THE PEOPLE FAIL TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO IT, THINGS WILL SOON GO VERY BAD,”
“THIS WAS WHY I JOINED THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF THE PDP IN THE STATE, DR ABDUL-AZEEZ OLAJIDE ADEDIRAN AKA JANDOR, SO THAT WE CAN REPAIR THE STATE.”
