Funke Akindele, popular Nollywood actress and running mate of the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in the just concluded election in Lagos State, Adediran Abdul-Azeez (Jandor), has said she doesn’t regret running for office.
The actress made this known on her Instagram page on Monday, as she further appreciates her supporters.
“It has been an amazing and insightful experience on my journey to the ballot and I must say, it was an absolute learning curve for me. A lot of things have been learned and unlearned. I sincerely do not regret taking this huge step of running for office. I therefore want to thank the people of Lagos state for believing in me and supporting my decision to run for office. I saw every message of support online and offline, I heard of all the places where people supported me and challenged those who tried to discredit me. I also want to encourage all who mean well for the Nation and the state of Lagos not to give up. I understand that some of us are beginning to develop some sort of apathy towards the system, however, if we do not speak, we would never be heard. Eko oni baje!,” she wrote.
