The All Progressive Congress presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described it as an insult mentioning the name of the Lagos Deputy Governorship candidate under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Funke Akindele in his presence.
Funke who’s also a popular actress and producer has faced numerous criticisms for venturing into politics with many claiming she’s too unserious for the role.
Tinubu said this when he met supporters at the Lagos APC secretariat on Acme Road in Ogba on Wednesday for the party’s caucus meeting.
Tinubu’s supporters in a song had compared the actress cum producer to an “ant” in the presence of the presidential candidate.
“…Who is Funke Akindele? (she is) an ant in the presence of the father of Lagos (Tinubu),” they sang in Yoruba.
Addressing the gathering in Yoruba, Tinubu said, “Don’t even behave as if you remember that name (Funke Akindele).
“It is a big insult, it is an abuse. A fowl wants to enter a house, it is bending down, how tall is it in the first place
Tinubu had been replying some singers during the state party stakeholders meeting at the state headquarters.
