SocialMediaTrends: What Nigerians are saying about Funke Akindele and her deputy governorship bid



Nigerians have been reacting to the confirmation of Veteran Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State.

Ripples Nigeria had earlier reported the rumours of Akindele as the running mate of Olajide Adediran, popularly called Jandor.

Funke Akindele has today (Tuesday) personally confirmed via her official Instagram and Twitter account that she would be Jandor’s running mate in the 2023 Lagos state gubernatorial election.

The selection of Funke by the PDP is coming at a time when Nigerians were still talking about the actor’s marriage crisis, and this has gotten Nigerians to talk the more.
