The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has warned his supporters not to mention actress Funke Akindele in his presence, saying it’s very disrespectful to do that.
Akindele is the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Lagos state.
Tinubu made this statement during a campaign in Lagos on Thursday.
The former Lagos State governor while campaigning for himself also used the opportunity to do so for the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu who’s seeking re-election.
At the political outing, his supporters had sung a campaign song, describing Akindele as a political ‘ant’ compared to Sanwo-Olu.
The song goes thus “Who is Funke Akindele before Sanwo-Olu of Lagos? She is an ant,” the supporters sang.
But Tinubu fumed: “Don’t even bother to mention her name in my presence. It is an insult. It is disrespectful.”
