“You are my hero” – Actor Alex Ekubo Backed Funke Akindele in the governorship race

He praised her for being a wonderful mother, actress, film producer, businesswoman, and now a politician. 

Popular Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo celebrated fellow politician Funke Akindele on International Women’s Day on social media.

Alex, who dedicated her Women’s Day post to the Lagos governor’s PDP deputy nominee, praised her for her strength and resilience. 

He lauded her for being an amazing mother, actor, movie producer, businesswoman, and now a politician, and also wearing all the different hats well.

The 36-year-old actor, who claims to vote for people outside his political party, has endorsed Fanke Akindale in the gubernatorial race and vowed to vote for her.

Meanwhile, the gubernatorial and state elections scheduled for Saturday, March 11 have been postponed to March 18. 

He shared an Image of the actress and captioned it,

“Happy International Women’s Day to the incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State.

You are my hero of Women’s Day because you are consistent, resilient & dogged, you fall 13 times & get up 14 times. You constantly remind me that failure in certain areas of your life doesn’t define you as a person.
You exude confidence, competence, strength, and compassion all while maintaining beauty.
You have succeeded in your career for over 2 decades, which means you clearly understand how to maneuver terrain.
You never let anyone or any situation define you, you are an actor, producer, all-round entertainer, mother, entrepreneur, & politician.
You will succeed in this quest because, it will be a motivation to the average Nigerian/African girl to dream bigger, for her to know that her background should not keep her back to the ground. For her to know that a woman cannot be boxed or defined.
Your ability to regroup, reorganize, restructure & re-strategize should be studied.
I believe in you, i believe in the sincerity of purpose of your political ambitions.
Let me just remind you, Ore your dreams are 100% valid, don’t let anybody downplay your dream or tell you different, or try to make you feel inferior or less than a befitting candidate.
It hasn’t been done before is not an excuse otherwise the world will remain stagnant.
Let it be known that I stand with you with my full chest, as a full Lagos boy, bred & brought up in Surulere.

I wish you utmost success.

Deputy Governor Funke Akindele, that sounds about right.

Over here we vote individual & not party. Because at the end of the day, it’s the individual that will do the work not the political party.

This Saturday I vote #JandorFunke for a better Lagos.”
