Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has told his supporters that it is insulting to mention star actress and PDP’s Lagos gubernatorial running mate Funke Akindele in his presence.
Mr Tinubu is backing incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of APC for reelection. At a political outing in Lagos on Wednesday, his supporters had sung a campaign song, describing Ms Akindele as a political ‘ant’ compared to Mr Tinubu’s anointed candidate Mr Sanwo-Olu.
“Who is Funke Akindele before Sanwo-Olu of Lagos? She is an ant,” the supporters sang.
“Don’t even bother to mention her name in my presence. It is an insult. It is disrespectful,” Mr Tinubu replied disdainfully.
