Film producer and award-winning actor, Funke Akindele, has confidently said that her over 20m followers on Instagram and millions on Twitter can help the PDP governorship win the race.
Akindele divulged this during an interview session on Channels Television following her emergence as the running mate to Olajide Adediran aka Jandor.
“I believe myself and Jandor can win the governorship race in Lagos because I have over 20 million Instagram followers and millions of Twitter followers,” says Akindele.
She also mentioned that grassroots votes should not be underestimated, as she expressed faith in the people of Ikorodu, her birth place.
As of Friday July 14th, Funke has 15.5 million followers on her Instagram handle, @funkejennifaakindele whereas on her Twitter account, @funkeakindele, she has 1.4 million followers only.
While some fans have embraced and encouraged her sudden political ambition, others have criticised the timing following her recent marital woes.
