Funke Akindele Bello, the Nollywood box office queen, has been officially recognized by her father’s people as she stormed Ikorodu, Lagos state, for her official presentation as the deputy governor to the PDP’s gubernatorial candidate, Azeez Olajide Adediran, commonly known as Jandor.
Funke Akindele acknowledged earlier rumors about her new political post with the PDP.
The actress announced her intention to accept the offer as a deputy governorship candidate in a three-minute video posted on her Instagram page.
