The deputy governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Funke Akindele said the party will make the Ikorodu area attractive to local and foreign investors if elected in the forthcoming election.
She stated this during a Thanksgiving Service organised to appreciate God for putting her on the ballot, at the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), Ibukun-Olu Parish Aleke Circuit Headquarters in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The candidate, who noted that it was only God that could solve man’s numerous problems, said that if elected, she and the flag-bearer, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran, would rule with the fear of God to alleviate the masses’ suffering.
Akindele, who urged people to have faith in God and do the needful on election day, added that she remained a testimony by not giving up on life, having gone through hard times in life.
“Today; I am very happy and want to thank God for the successes achieved in life.
“I did not come here today for campaign but to thank God and worship with you as family and members of CCC.
“Just help me thank God and pray for me not to experience challenges that will be more than my capacity,” she said.
Earlier, Evangelist Paul Adelaja of the Church, who appreciated God, commended the PDP governorship candidate running mate for her resilience as well as for putting smiles on people’s faces.
Adelaja prayed for Akindele to triumph in all her life endeavours.
Meanwhile, Akindele proceeded to Imota Local Council Developmental Area (LCDA), where she was given a rousing welcome by her fans.
She promised to revamp the health sector and increase the number of Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) for quality healthcare service delivery in all the local governments in the state.
“It is high time people should allow another government to take over and solve the current hardship in Lagos.
“We have different programmes ranging from free education, women empowerment and so on.
“What you need now is to start to canvass for votes so that we can win the election,” she said.
