The Deputy Governorship candidate of the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olufunke Akindele, on Thursday took her campaign to some notable markets in the Alimosho area of the state, assuring traders of readiness to amend all unpopular policies if PDP was elected to form the next government in Lagos in 2023.
Akindele, a popular Nollywood Actress, gave the assurance in continuation of a 3-day campaign which the party’s governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor) and herself both flagged off Wednesday.
Akindele sought traders’ support for all PDP candidates in the 2023 general election, assuring that Adediran’s government would not close down any market but rather punish whoever flouted the law.
Addressing market men and women at Council Market in Alimosho, she told traders that only PDP candidates had the vision and passion to make Lagos work for all residents regardless of ethnic backgrounds.
“Only Jandor can do it and give you the kind of state you desire. We shall not disappoint you. We need your support. Please, vote Jandor and PDP,” she said.
