Funke Adesiyan, a Nollywood actress, has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The actress announced her defection in a post on her Instagram page on Saturday.

“We are a moving train. We thank everyone for your best wishes,” she wrote.

“My journey into politics was borne out of my passion and desire to touch people’s lives positively. Having realised that there was little I could achieve in my private capacity, I decided to put myself in the political landscape of the country.

“That resolve has never changed. My mission has always been to make life easy for the man next door. While that could not be achieved on a different platform in #2015 due to factors that would not be necessary to delve into at this time; it is my joy to announce today that I am joining the #progressives with the same resolve.”

My journey into politics was borne out of my passion and desire to touch people's lives positively. Having realised that there was little I could achieve in my private capacity, I decided to put myself in the political landscape of the country. That resolve has never changed. My mission has always been to make life easy for the man next door. While that could not be achieved on a different platform in #2015 due to factors that would not be necessary to delve into at this time; it is my joy to announce today that I am joining the #progressives with the same resolve. My commitment and loyalty to whatever or whoever I believe in is unwavering, unflagging and unflinching. I assure my people of my unalloyed commitment to a life more abundant. This can only be achieved by working side by side with individuals who are also driven by the same passion to achieve an egalitarian society. God bless Nigeria God bless Oyo State. Funke Adesiyan.

In February, she chastised Bola Tinubu, Wole Soyinka and Adams Oshiomhole for selling President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians.

“There was a country. I am not disappointed in this egoistic, deceitful, two-faced tyrant of a president as I did not vote for him,” she said at the time.

“I am more disappointed in men of supposed honor who sold this bad product to gullible Nigerians and yet keep mute as the democracy they alongside many others fought for is being destroyed by this tyrant of a general.

“I am disappointed in Asiwaju Tinubu, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Adams Oshiomole and many more men and women who had led us to believe they are on the side of Nigeria and the oppressed.

“You elderly ones who sold us this bad market and yet keep mute in the face of impunity have failed your country. Your loyalty to your country is tainted and untrue.

“On this day, I wish Gani Fawehinmi and Abami Eda were alive. These were true great men whose loyalty to Nigeria will forever be unquestionable.”

Adesiyan represented the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 house of assembly election in Oyo state.
