Funke Akindele has excluded the surname of her estranged husband from her campaign poster.
Earlier, Akindele was confirmed as the running mate of Olajide ‘Jandor’ Adediran.
Adediran is the 2023 governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos.
Abdulrasheed Bello, who is popularly known as JJC Skillz, had separated from Akindele, halting their six-year marriage.
In Akindele’s campaign poster released via her social handles, the actress excluded JJC Skillz’s surname.
Although “Bello” is still affixed to her full name across her social handles as of when this report was filed.
Akindele earlier spoke of her political ambition and reiterated her commitment to bettering youth welfare.
“When the PDP gubernatorial candidate asked me to be his running mate, I saw it as an opportunity to help liberate and improve the welfare of our people, particularly the deprived youth, women, and the girl child,” she said.
“My decision is not only to accept this huge responsibility but also to work tirelessly and complement Jandor’s burning desire.
“Over the years, a lot of young people have been ignored, victimised, and maimed for daring to have a dream.
“I use this opportunity to call out all well-meaning residents of Lagos. It’s indeed time to use our numeric strength to our full advantage.”
