Guber election: Funke Akindele reacts as Jandor loses to APC’s Sanwo-Olu

Funke Akindele, the running mate of the Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adediran Abdul-Azeez (Jandor), has said she doesn’t regret running for political office.

Akindele made this known in a series of tweets via her Twitter handle on Monday, as she further appreciates her supporters.

Recall that incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated Jandor in the just concluded March 18, 2023, gubernatorial election.

Sanwo Olu won with 762, 134 votes, defeating the Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, who scored 312, 329, followed by Abdul-Azeez Adediran with 62, 449 votes.

“It has been an amazing and insightful experience on my journey to the ballot,” Akindele tweeted.

“I sincerely don’t 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.

“The elections might not have panned out in the way we hoped, but it was an honourable run for us. We fought a good fight indeed, as a matter of fact.”
