“It’s election season! and @funkejenifaakindele is my candidate.

“Reasons being, you’re hardworking, you’re smart, you’re tough, you’re emotional, above all, you’re disciplined. You dare to tread where others wouldn’t fly. You’re a risk taker. I know you’re a filmmaker. I trust you will do a good job. You have my vote,” she wrote.

Ekubo also took to Instagram to give his reasons for supporting Akindele. The actor urged Lagosians to elect someone who is accountable, empathetic, and accessible.

He added that if elected, the Jandor/Funke administration will create a change that is different from the norm.

“This election cycle is about individuals the people want to vote for, people they can hold accountable, relatable people; people that are easily accessible, people that are not just sympathetic but empathetic to our plight & concerns.

“People want something different from the norm. This is why I believe in the Jandor/Funke campaign. Jandor ticks all the right boxes for Lagos at this time.

“I strongly believe if they are voted into office, they will bridge the gap between the government and the masses,” he wrote.
