The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has chosen Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Bello as Olajide Adediran’s running partner for governor of Lagos State.
The movie actor reportedly underwent a screening process before being selected as Adediran’s running companion.

You may remember that the governorship candidate’s spokesman named Akindele as one of the five candidates for Adediran’s running mate.

“Funke Akindele hasn’t been confirmed as Jandor’s running mate. Funke is one of the five nominees to be Jandor’s running mate,” he said.

“She was nominated alongside four other people, whose names are Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, Kolawole Vaughan, Adenike Shobajo, and [Rasheed] Teslim-Balogun. Jandor has not named anyone as his running mate yet.”

Akindele’s nomination comes only one week after Tonto Dikeh, another colleague, received a nomination to serve as the ADC candidate for governor of Rivers State’s running partner.

“After a series of consultations with leaders of our party the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers State and the national level, I’m glad to announce Amb. Tonto Dikeh ( tontolet )as my running mate for the 2023 gubernatorial election in Rivers State,” Tonte Ibraye, the governorship candidate wrote.

Akindele has been an actor for over 20 years and has a background in law.
