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