Austin Faani questions why actress Funke Akindele’s colleagues aren’t supporting her political ambition


Popular Nollywood filmmaker, Austin Faani, has bemoaned the lack of support from celebrities for actress Funke Akindele’s political ambition.

Faani, in a recent post on his Instagram page, said that celebrities, especially female actresses, are not campaigning for their colleague and PDP deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State, Funke Akindele.

He questioned if Funke’s colleagues are being unsupportive out of sheer envy or because they have doubts about her capabilities.

“Funke Akindele’s colleagues are not campaigning for her, especially the female celebrities. Could it be envy or what? We can post her film but not her political ambition. Arnold Schwarzenegger was once the governor of California. Y’all think she is not capable?
I trust she will do better than all the previous Deputy Governors of Lagos put together. Vote my Colleague.” He wrote.

In another news, Nollywood actress and Lagos state governorship candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Funke Akindele was reportedly chased out of the Kosofe fruit market.

Funke Akindele had gone to the Kosofe fruit market to campaign before the election but was harassed and forced out by several hoodlums.

The PDP gubernatorial candidate, Abdul-Azeez Adediran, also known as Jandor, responded to the event that occurred yesterday during a meeting with the head Imam of Ketu Central Mosque.

He condemned the assault and revealed that a member of his security team was stabbed while others including journalists were injured during the attack.


He said:

“What is happening we do not want it again. It is not good for democracy, but despite the attacks, we are moving and still motivated to rescue our people. I know it is only God that can give and take, if God gives you no one can take.”
