Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has come out to break her silence on her defeat in the March 18 gubernatorial elections in Lagos. She recently had her say via her social media page, and fans have been reacting.
According to her, it has really been an amazing and insightful experience on her journey to the ballot, but she regrets nothing despite her loss, and will see the experience as a learning curve.
Funke Akindele added that she is grateful to people of Lagos State for believing in her and supporting her decision to try politics.
Her words, “It has been an amazing and insightful experience on my journey to the ballot, and I must say, it was an absolute learning curve for me. A lot of things have been learned and unlearned. I sincerely do not regret taking this huge step of running for office.”
“I, therefore, want to thank the people of Lagos state for believing in me and supporting my decision to run for office. I saw every message of support online and offline, I heard of all the places where people supported me and challenged those who tried to discredit me. I remember every warm welcome during our campaign tour and the faith you all showed in me. The elections might not have panned out in the way we hoped, but it was an honorable run for us. We fought a good fight indeed as a matter of fact.”
“I also want to encourage all who mean well for the Nation and the state of Lagos not to give up. I understand that some of us are beginning to develop some sort of apathy toward the system, however, if we do not speak, we would never be heard. I’m glad that we could at least speak up.”
“Thank you once again, Lagos, for showing your daughter support. As I consider my next moves in life, I will continue prioritizing the good of the people and the integrity of my position as an advocate for the people.
Eko oni baje!”
