Funke Akindele and Tonto dike were picked as governorship running mates on various state in the federal republic of Nigeria
Funke Akindele was picked as the running mate to the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr Olajide Adediran aka Jandor, while Tonto Dikeh was picked as the running mate to the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers State, Tonte Ibraye.
Amadi, who is also a political analyst, told the Daily Post that the competition among professionals, especially in the entertainment sector is very high, as most celebrities earn in different capacities depending on their profiles.
“Most of these actors and singers depend on politicians and corporate entities for endorsement and oftentimes they are more concerned about what they will benefit. And if they are going to support one of their own, it means they are going to take a position against the more commercially profitable parties that are competing.
“If Funke Akindele wasn’t running, she would probably be supporting Atiku, Tinubu, Peter Obi or some party that has the capacity to pay them for their endorsement, support or other forms of advocacy they do for them.”She stated
