Alexx Ekubo, the actor, has endorsed Funke Akindele, the running mate to Olajide ‘Jandor’ Adediran, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos. 


Alexx took to his Instagram page to give out his reasons for supporting Funke. 

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,” he wrote. 

“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.”

In September last year, Ekubo pledged to support Akindele, who is Jandor’s deputy governorship candidate.

On March 11, Nigerians will go to the polls to elect a new governor in some states.

In Lagos, the three major candidates for the governorship office are Jandor, Olajide Adediran, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP), and the incumbent governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
