This is coming several days after a photo of Jandor and Akindele had gone viral last Friday, with Jandor purported to have chosen the Nollywood actress as the deputy governorship candidate.

However, it was gathered that the actress was only nominated as a potential running mate while the decision on who will run with the governorship candidate was yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, Funke Akindele’s colleague, Tonto Dikeh has been selected as a running mate to Tonte Ibraye, the governorship candidate of the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers State for the 2023 elections.
