Funke Akindele boasts of grassroot supporters for upcoming election
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governor candidate in Lagos, Funke Akindele, claims she has what it takes to bring success to her group.
Akindele, a lawyer, actress, and film producer, was formally introduced as Olajide Adediran, a.k.a. Jandor, the Lagos PDP governorship candidate’s running partner.
She advised Lagos’ youth to use their numbers to their advantage in the upcoming election.
Speaking on Thursday when she appeared on Channels Television, she said that in addition to her online followers, she also had grassroots supporters.
“I have these fans and followers. I feel their pain. I hear people nag. I watch TV; I feel their pain. I’m going out there to proffer solutions. I’m going there for my fans, my followers, for Lagosians. It’s time for change, for change for the youth, for women.”
“Over seven years, Dr Abdul-Azeez has been building this structure. He knows them; he knows what they need. I have the numbers. I have fans and followers. I’m true to myself. I have over 19 to 20 million fans on social media.
There are a lot of people in the grassroots. Outside of Ikorodu, I have fans at the grassroot level everywhere.”
