2023: Funke Akindele Nominated As Running Mate For PDP Guber Candidate

Nollywood icon Funke Akindele has been named as one of the nominees for the position of running mate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos, Olajide Adediran.

The popular actress made headlines recently following the revelation by her husband JJC Skillz that their marriage had hit the rocks.

Per a Pulse report, Akindele's nomination was disclosed by Adediran's spokesperson who revealed that the Nollywood star is one of five persons being considered for the running mate position.
