This occurs shortly after the mother of two removed her campaign’s Instagram posts.
Funke Akindele disclosed a lengthy Instagram statement praising her insightful experience during her trip to the Nigerian polls.
The actress was appreciative of Lagos State for their support and belief in her.
The sentiments and encouragement she received from her fans and other well-wishers both online and offline were also appreciated according to Funke Akindele.
The mother of two stated that she is moving on.
She stated ;
“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 faith you all showed in me. The elections might not have panned out in the way we hoped, but it was an honourable 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 towards 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!”
