Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has revealed that she has what it takes to help the People’s Democratic Party 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.⁣

“Dear Lagosians it is important to share with you my decision to venture into what I consider a much bigger facet to serve humanity. I am convinced it is right to hear from me directly. With my main career in the entertainment industry spanning over 25 years and the God-given grace to achieve quite remarking success I have the privilege to work with different people,” she said.⁣

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.⁣

The movie star is a trained lawyer with an acting career spanning over two decades.⁣
