Funke Akindele expresses no regret on vying for a post

Funke Akindele, the Deputy Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, has expressed no regrets about the move she made to join politics and contest in the just-concluded elections.
Akindele and Abdul-Azeez Adediran, aka Jandor, her principal, were defeated by the incumbent governor and All Progressives Congress candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in the March 18 elections.

On the same page, she wrote, “It has been an amazing and insightful experience on my journey to the ballot, and I must say, it was an absolute learning curve for me. A lot of things have been learned and unlearned. I sincerely do not regret taking this huge step of running for office.

“I, therefore, want to thank the people of Lagos State for believing in me and supporting my decision to run for office. I saw every message of support online and offline. I heard of all the places where people supported me and challenged those who tried to discredit me.

“I remember every warm welcome during our campaign tour and the faith you all showed in me. The elections might not have panned out the way we hoped, but it was an honorable run for us. We fought a good fight indeed, as a matter of fact.

“I also want to encourage all who mean well for the nation and the state of Lagos not to give up. I understand that some of us are beginning to develop some sort of apathy toward the system, however, if we do not speak, we will never be heard. I’m glad that we could at least speak up. Thank you once again, Lagos, for showing your daughter support. As I consider my next moves in life, I will continue to prioritize the good of the people and the integrity of my position as an advocate for the people. Eko oni baje!”
