Funke Emerges Lagos PDP Deputy Governorship Candidate by etokhana: 4:02pm On Jul 06
Funke Akindele, Nollywood actress popularly known as ‘Jenifa’, has been chosen as the running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos.

She emerged the Deputy Governorship candidate, beating five other nominees for the position.

Governorship Candidate in the state, Dr Abdul Azeez Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor, and the leadership of the party in the state, confirmed the development.

It was gathered that the running mate would be unveiled at a soon to be held event.

Daily Trust had exclusively reported how five names were shortlisted for the position.

They included Ms Akindele; former governorship aspirant, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo, another governorship aspirant, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA and Engr. Teslim Balogun.

A picture of Jandor and Akindele had since gone viral suggesting the Nollywood actress has been chosen as the candidate.

But there was serious resistance from some stakeholders of the party which led to the delay in finalising the selection of the running mate.

Daily Trust however learnt that the candidate was able to convince the party’s stakeholders, citing the popularity of Jenifa among the youth population and the fact that she hailed from Lagos East Senatorial District, precisely Ikorodu.

A source close to the governorship candidate confirmed the selection of Akindele but added, “it has not been announced officially.”

Lagos PDP not serious. No doubt, Funke Akindele is a good actress and content creator but she has minimal administrative experience for state like Lagos. She is the CEO of Scene One Production but it was her ex-husband JJC Skillz who actively managed staff and projects given her temper and pugnacity.

Now, time to talk about that failed marriage:
Funke Akindele had worked with JJC Skillz on a project, liked his deep experience. She sensed that she would gain more business-wise by making him an in-house partner. She made a move and JJC Skillz needing love at the time fell like a park of cards. So the marriage was more of a business relationship with intimacy than a marital relationship built on mutual love. Good thing is Funke Akindele achieved her dream of becoming a mother and JJC Skillz expanded his branches.

One thing must be said though: if JJC Skillz (Abdul-Rasheed Bello) had become wealthy and world-famous in line with his artistic accomplishments as international producer, songwriter, performing artiste and showbiz impresario over the years, Funke Akindele would be queuing up with tears of joy for his autography. He once had Dbanj, Don Jazzy and others as members of his group JJC & 419 squad. Dude has paid his dues very early in life but I guess either sh*t happened or wealth is not just in his stars.

Once they start running stuffs with politicians their husbands become trash to them. Like mercy aigbe like funke. Just come out to the media to justify your promiscuousness with 'dead beat father' or 'domestic violence' and the foolish media will support you and condemn the man who is the real victim of verbal and emotional abuse.

Omo!

This is definitely gonna give Jandor ticket some popularity.

But can they win the election? That one a different wrap of moi moi.

Tinubu’s army of Agbero is too numerous to be dislodged. Except Jandor and Funke can match them Agbero for Agbero and thug for thug.

Should Sanwolu be worried?
