Funke Akindele’s mum died when most needed—Lagos PDP Women Leader


The Lagos State PDP Women Leader, Alhaja Idowu Akinsanya, on Wednesday commiserated with the party’s Deputy Governorship Candidate, Ms Funke Akindele on the demise of her mother, Dr R. B. Adebanjo-Akindele.

Akinsanya in a statement said the death of the mother of the veteran Nollywood actress came as a rude shock to the women wing in the party.

According to her, the death of Akindele’s mother came when she was most needed in the build up to the elections.

“We lost her at this period that all the women in Lagos needed her most,” the PDP women leader said.

Akinsanya, however, said that the passing of Akindele’s mother would not deterred the campaign towards ensuring victory for the party.
She, however, said that women in the party would move closer to Akindele and support her vision to give back to the women in society and the less privilege when emerged as the deputy governor.

She said that the party’s Governorship Candidate, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (JANDOR) and Akindele had been working hard to make sure PDP wins the election.

“Lagos women is standing firm and throw their weight behind Jandor and Funke Akindele during this crucial period.

“This will not weaken their effort neither deter them from the dream ahead, but rather make them stronger and be more focused,” she said.

She prayed that God would grant Akindele fortitude to bear the loss, urging all PDP members to keep praying for the party ‘s deputy governorship candidate.

Adebanjo-Akindele’s death was announced on Tuesday evening by Funke’s sister, Olubunmi Akindele on her Instagram page on behalf of the families of Adebanjo and Akindele.
