Recent images of Nigerian actors Jandor and Akindele seemed to suggest that the latter had been chosen as the deputy governorship candidate from her party.
Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has allegedly been nominated as one of the candidates for deputy governor of Lagos state under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). According to reports, the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has commenced process for selecting a running mate for its governorship candidate, Dr. Olajide Adediran—popularly known as Jandor.
The Nigerian actress was one of many potential candidates considered for the position. And she is reportedly at the top of the nominee list. Other names on the list include: former gubernatorial candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo; another possible gubernatorial candidate, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA; and Engr. Teslim Balogun (all listed in order).
Akindele might have been chosen as the deputy gubernatorial candidate after a picture of her and Jandor went viral on Friday – almost simultaneously with Tonto Dikeh and Tonte Abraye’s pictures released publicly earlier in the week.
Though unknown whether she will indeed run alongside him or not – it has only recently been revealed that she is being considered as a viable option to become his running mate, according to Daily Trust correspondents’ findings – which will later be determined when finally announced.
