Veteran Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele a.k.a Jenifa, has been nominated as one of the potential running mates for Deputy Governor of Lagos state by Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP), Alhaji Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor.

The actress’ name was mentioned among the six shortlisted names by the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Other shortlisted names include the 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.

However, this news came following Nollywood Actress Tonto Dikeh’s appointment as the deputy governorship candidate for Rivers State.

Recall that, Tonto Dikeh was selected by the Rivers State gubernatorial candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Tonte Ibraye.

The party’s Rivers governorship candidate had said during an interview:

“This is the height of the 2023 general elections; it is a challenge we are throwing to the people of Rivers and Nigerians generally.

“Within the last ten years, Nigerian youths had been saying they are not too young to run, that they must be carried along in governance.

“And the ADC had decided to sign post that with the team we have put together for Rivers so that they can use the state resources, not just to play politics, but to develop the state and its youths as the human capital base of the country,”
