Speaking at a political event on Wednesday, November 2, Tinubu said it’s insulting and disrespectful to mention Funke Akindele’s name in his presence.
He said this when his supporters sang a campaign song, describing Funke Akindele, the Peoples Democratic Party Lagos Deputy Governorship candidate, as a ‘political ant’ compared to APC Lagos governorship candidate and incumbent governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
“Who is Funke Akindele before Sanwo-Olu of Lagos? She is an ant,” they sang in Yoruba.
