Actress Ruth Kadiri-Ezerika has gone public with her support for her colleague Funke Akindele the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos.

Funke has received very little support from her colleagues since becoming Abdul-Azeez Olajide aka Jandor’s running mate.

Many of her colleagues are torn between their support for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Gbadebo Rhode-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP).

However, on Monday, Ruth threw her weight behind Jenifa’s Diary producer.

She listed her reasons for supporting Funke, noting that the latter is smart and hardworking.

“It’s election season! And @funkejenifaakindele is my candidate. The reasons being; You’re hardworking. You’re smart. You’re tough. You’re emotional. Above all you’re disciplined.

“You dare to tread where others won’t fly. You’re a risk taker. I know you’re a filmmaker. I trust you will do a good job. You have my vote,” Ruth wrote.

In the comment section, Funke expressed gratitude to her colleague for the support with the words, “Thank you Ruth.”
