The deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Funke Akindele, says only the party has a solution to the nation’s problems.

Ms Akindele said this at a youth programme organised by the Lagos Youths Movement (LYM) in the Alimosho area of Lagos.

She charged the youths to vote for PDP candidates across the board, saying voting for the Lagos PDP governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez (Jandor) Adediran, was synonymous with voting for good governance in the state.

Ms Akindele described Lagos as a blessed state that needs to be governed by people who had made their marks in the private sector, saying that she and Jandor were employers of labour with enough managerial experience and capacity for Lagos governance.

She urged the youths to actively participate in the 2023 general elections, adding that it is their right and responsibility to vote for credible candidates.

“It is our right to participate in the coming elections and Lagos politics because we reside and do business in the state. In the 2023 general elections, we must get it right by voting Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as president and Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor) as Lagos governor. Enough is enough in Lagos.

“Jandor and I have never held any political office but had been in private businesses developing talents. With my film organisation, I have nurtured talents that have added value to the development of Lagos and Nigeria.

“The Jandor government will do better in developing your talents beyond your expectations,” said Akindele.

She stated that it was ripe for the youths to take back the country and Lagos and urged the people to persuade their parents, families and friends to vote for Jandor in the March 11 governorship election.
