The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the nomination of ace actress Funke Akindele popularly known as Jenifa, as Deputy Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party “underscores the unseriousness of Lagos State PDP.”
Spokesman of the party, Seye Oladejo, disclosed this in a statement while reacting to the nomination of Akindele as the running mate to PDP governorship candidate, Dr Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran aka Jandor.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had reported that Akindele had confirmed via her verified social media page that she has been chosen as a running mate to Dr Olajide Adediran, popularly called Jandor.
Oladejo said, “This amounts to trivializing the importance of the forthcoming gubernatorial elections by giving political neophytes who have absolutely nothing to bring to the table their electoral tickets.
“It also shows lack of depth in the party as regards quality members to put forward for elections if they could give a member who crossed-carpeted a few days before their primaries the governorship ticket and now went to the make-believe industry to fetch a deputy.
“The reason for voters’ apathy is, undoubtedly, due to lack of credible alternatives by the moribund opposition party.
“I was amused to read that the deputy governorship candidate said she was suspending her acting career for the elections whose result is highly predictable. I guess she’s suspending a lot more because she has been in the news of recent for all the wrong reasons.
“Lagosians will certainly not allow governance to be turned to a needless experiment or a sitcom. Governance is serious business not a circus.
“Congratulations in advance to the duo of Governor Babajide SANWOOLU-olu and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat.”
