Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has emerged favourite to become the running mate to Lagos PDP governorship candidate, Olajide Adediran.
The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has shortlisted five names as the potential running mate of the party’s governorship candidate popularly known as Jandor.
Also shortlisted are: former governorship aspirant, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo, another governorship aspirant, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA, and Engr. Teslim Balogun.
A picture of Jandor and Akindele had gone viral recently suggesting the Nollywood actress had been chosen as the deputy governorship candidate.
However, the actress was only nominated as a potential running mate while the decision on who will run with the governorship candidate is yet to be taken.
A committee has been set up to screen the aspirants and come up with the most suitable candidate to be the running mate to Jandor.
A meeting of stakeholders of the party is reportedly ongoing to select one of the nominees.
