Nigerian Actress, Funke Akindele Takes Down All Politics-related Posts From Her IG Account
Popular actress and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State, Funke Akindele, has deleted all posts relating to the gubernatorial elections and her political career from her Instagram page.
A check on Monday showed that the movie star left only her film production promotional content and as well as celebratory posts for notable social events.
Funke, who once declared confidently that she has 20 million followers who could vote for her, currently has 15.7 million followers on Instagram.
She had made the statement when asked during an interview if she believes she and the PDP governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor) can win the election.
Funke said: “I have the numbers, I have fans and followers and I'm true to myself. I have more than 20m fans on social media and also at the grassroots level.
“I have fans at the grassroots level outside Ikorodu ready to support me and I'm true to myself. What I'm coming in is to change the lives of Lagosians. I'm here to provide solutions in Lagos. I'm in the system, I'm in the pain, we all know where the shoe pinches us.”
Her deletion of the political posts from her IG came after the Sunday night declaration of incumbent governor and All Progressives Congress candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as winner of the gubernatorial election.
