Funke Akindele, an actress turned politician, has revealed why she has continued to dismiss criticism about her political ambitions weeks after Tinubu’s disparaging statement.
Funke revealed this during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos, Olajide Adediran aka Jandor’s, ongoing grassroots engagement with locals in Eleko village, Ibeju-Lekki axis of the state.
When asked why she ignored individuals who made nasty comments about her, she stated:
“WE WANT TO SECURE THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN AND IT STARTS NOW. THEY SAID SO MANY THINGS, WHEN I WANTED TO COME OUT, BUT I DID NOT ANSWER THEM BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THE STATE WILL BE BETTER IF WE GET INTO OFFICE.”
The 45-year-old said she joined the governorship race to save Lagos from “bad governance.”
“NOBODY IS HAPPY WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN LAGOS STATE AT THE MOMENT. IF THE PEOPLE FAIL TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO IT, THINGS WILL SOON GO VERY BAD,”
“THIS WAS WHY I JOINED THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF THE PDP IN THE STATE, DR ABDUL-AZEEZ OLAJIDE ADEDIRAN AKA JANDOR, SO THAT WE CAN REPAIR THE STATE.”
