Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has officially been named as the deputy governorship candidate under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The movie star made the announcement known via her Instagram page on Tuesday, July 12. “Dear Lagosians it is important to share with you my decision to venture into what I consider a much bigger facet to serve humanity. I am convinced it is right to hear from me directly. With my main career in the entertainment industry spanning over 25 years and the God-given grace to achieve quite remarking success I have the privilege to work with different people,” she said.
Akindele said she decided to accept the mandate to help women and improve the wellbeing of youths and the girl child. The movie star said she’ll be putting her bubbling acting career on hold for the purpose of the new path. It would be recalled that the spokesman for the governorship candidate had announced Akindele as one of the five persons nominated as Adediran’s running mate. As it stands now, Akindele will be running with the PDP Lagos State governorship candidate, Olajide Adediran, popularly called Jandor.
5. Wilshere named Arsenal U18s boss after announcing retirement at the age of 30
Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has announced his retirement at the age of 30, with the ex-England international bringing “the journey of a lifetime” to a close, and he has now been named as coach of the Gunners’ Under-18s side. A man with 34 caps for the Three Lions to his name had dropped into a free agent pool again this summer after severing ties with Danish outfit AGF Aarhus.
Rather than push himself through another pre-season of staying in shape while waiting on potential offers from elsewhere, a product of a famed academy system in north London has decided to hang up his boots and open a new chapter in his career aiding the development of future stars.
