Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), told his supporters not to call the name of Nollywood actress and People Democratic Party’s Lagos vice governorship candidate Funke Akindele.

The statement by the APC presidential candidate sparked reactions on social media on Thursday as he told his supporters not to mention Akindele’s name in his presence.
