Actress and deputy governorship candidate of Lagos’ Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Funke Akindele, has called on youths in the state to take advantage of their numerical strength to make changes in the 2023 elections.
She said this in a video shared on her Instagram page on Tuesday, where she confirmed she’s the running mate to the Lagos PDP governorship candidate, Olajide Adediran.
Expressing a desire for Lagos to live up to its full potential, the top actress urged the youths to utilise this moment and take over their rightful place in the scheme of political affairs in the State.
“Over the years, a lot of young people have been ignored, victimised, maimed for daring to have a dream.
“I use this opportunity to call out all well-meaning residents of Lagos, especially the youths. It is indeed time to use our numerical strength to our full advantage. It is time to take our rightful place in matters that concern our lives and our future.
“It is time to rally ourselves and support our own,” she wrote.
Earlier, Quest Times reported that the script writer was unveiled by the PDP candidate for the Lagos gubernatorial election, Jandor, amid uproar on social media.
