Meanwhile, the Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for picking Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele also known as Jenifa, as its deputy gubernatorial candidate.
This comes after PDP’s governorship flagbearer, Dr. Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran aka Jandor, nominated the actress as his running mate.
Reacting to the selection, APC spokesperson, Mr. Seye Oladejo, mocked PDP and said they choose Funke Akindele because they don’t have credible alternatives in the party, while noting that Lagosians will not allow them turn governance into a sitcom or circus.
