Lagos 2023: PDP Set To Unveil Funke Akindele As Running Mate On Tuesday by Kwanza: 9:21pm On Jul 11
Lagos State Governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Olajide Adediran, popularly called Jandor, has finally concluded plan to officially announce and present on Tuesday, the Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, as running mate for the coming 2023 election.

Recall, Vanguard Media had earlier reported that in line with Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s guidelines on elections, Lagos State chapter of PDP, had commenced process for the selection of running mate to Jandor.

Akindele, from Ikorodu division was said to be on top of the list which comprises of other four names as potential running mate of the party’s governorship candidate, Jandor.

Two of the shortlisted candidates – Rhodes-Vivour and Kolawole – are from Lagos West, the same senatorial district with Jandor, hence, negatively affecting reducing their chances


Also, a picture of Jandor and Akindele had surfaced and gone viral purported to have chosen Akindele as the running mate

Media reports had claimed that four major reasons were responsible for choosing Akindele as running mate for the coveted position.

“The reasons are she is from Ikorodu and Lagos East Senatorial District like the incumbent Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hsmzat.

“She is also from the royal family in the town,” a source said.

According to sources within Jandor campaign team, who preferred anonymity, Akindele will be unveiled as running mate in Ikorodu on Tuesday, all things being equal.

The event, which is coming up at the residence of the Apex leader of Lagos4Lagos Movement, late Mrs Adenrele Ogunsanya, Ikorodu, is scheduled for11 am.

Akindele, popularly called, “Jenifer” emergence as running mate to Jandor, however, will put to rest weeks of speculations.


Meanwhile, an official statement made available to Vanguard by Head, Media and Communications, Jandor ’23 Campaign Organization, Gbenga Ogunleye, stated that Jandor will unveil his running mate as well as “RESCUE Lagos Agenda.”

The statement read in part, “The Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (JANDOR) will officially announce his running mate and Deputy Governorship Candidate of the party tomorrow Tuesday, July 12, 2022.

“Venue Pa Ogunsanya Country Home,
Fuwagboye Courts (by Technical College Grammar School), Ikorodu, Lagos.Time is 11am.”

Romantic selection.
Initially politics was something we learn from because intellectuals with productive IQ where there, now the case is the reverse.

This day politics is teaching the younger one's how to steal, kill anyone that step's in their way and lie.

Still group of idiots will name an airport, train station, streets with their names.

Laughable!

Lagos opposition parties shouldn't bother fielding any candidates. It would be better they invest their funds into my silo business. Why? Because Samwolu and Tinubu has hijacked lagos.mm

Youths are taking over. Awon youths lokan. Take your destiny in your hands and rule your world.

All the old politicians have hurt your destiny.

Ask tinubu who camw all the way from osun had converted lagos into his private property with his family. You'd know better.
